Why Plant Hardy Geraniums?

Hardy Geraniums deserve a place of honor in your perennial gardens.  They are versatile, reliable and provide a fantastic punch of color for a long period of time. Almost all will grow in sun or part shade and some will even grow in complete shade. They are quite drought tolerant and will grow in the presence of walnut trees (which are toxic to some plants). They are also seldom bothered by deer. Butterflies and hummingbirds gather nectar from them. The main difference in the Geraniums that we offer is that they vary in size and flower color. The Cantabrigiense hybrids such as 'Biokova'and Karmina form very tight mats of foliage that can be impenetrable to weeds. They also have some red tones to their foliage in the fall. All of the Geraniums deserve a place of honor in the garden!
