Geranium phaeum 'Samobor'


Availability : Available

Description :

Dusky cranesbill

The Geranium phaeum species is native to mountainous regions in Europe from the Pyrenees to western Russia. It is a herbaceous perennial found in light woodland or damp, shady locations. It forms an upright clump and its leaves often have brownish purple markings.

Geranium phaeum 'Samobor' has flat, 2 cm diameter, violet maroon flowers that appear in late spring and foliage splashed with brownish purple markings.

In the garden we like to combine it with the chartreuse yellow flowers of Euphorbia, the dark purple of the columbines (Aquilegia 'Black Barlow', Aquilegia 'William Guiness'), the delicate foliage of ferns, bleeding hearts (Dicentra spectabilis) or the incredible golden yellow foliage of Acanthus 'Hollard's Gold'.

Height: 40 cm to 60 cm.

Grow in partial shade (or north-facing) in good, rich, moist garden soil.

Maintenance: divide the clumps in the spring or early autumn. Prune the foliage and remove the dried floral stems. Mulch with leaf compost at the beginning of the winter.
