Product Description

This is a popular perennial geranium that will make you wonder what you ever did before you discovered it! An absolutely invaluable groundcover plant for your garden, it's quite happy to grow where others fear to set down roots - rewarding you with pretty lilac-pink flowers and attractive, scented leaves which colour up a rusty green in autumn.

In spring, 'Ingwersen's Variety' get the season off to a great start with a soft mound of downy new leaves which are quickly followed by its pale flowers - often with slightly darker veining - as it begins to fill gaps and spread itself gently though the border.

Besides its flowers, the soft leaves of geranium macrorrhizum are an attractive feature in their own right, being very fragrant and lobed, which means this variety is gorgeous even when not in flower and you'll not be able to resist running your hands over it.

Growing to around 40cm high, this is a medium sized variety, and one of those 'well behaved' groundcover plants - filling gaps and growing where little else will thrive, even tolerating dry shade - and an absolutely perfect partner for clematis where it will cover a straggly, bare base.

‘Ingwersen’s variety will grow in any moderately fertile soil as long as it's not waterlogged, and it’s happy in full sun or any type of shade, colonising the ground with rooting stems in cool conditions.

Supplied and 6 plug plants, ready to pot up and grow on or plant straight out.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Snip off faded flowers at the base or shear the tops of the plants back to new growth in order to stimulate reblooming and freshen the foliage.

Care Guide

  • Really low maintenance.
  • Prefers compost-enriched soil that stays moist. If planting straight out, keep well-watered until established.
  • Doesn’t normally need dividing but plants can be split in spring or autumn if needed.
  • A haircut with shears after flowering is all the pruning that is required.

Albeit, it was almost a week from notice of dispatch to the order arriving !
Product:
I bought 2 sets, ie 12 plants. Eleven looked healthy, one was rather sickly with no growth ?
I have potted these on, eleven coming along nicely, the twelve is a goner !
