22 May I Love Geranium x cantabrigiense ‘Biokovo’
Name: Geranium x cantabrigiense ‘Biokovo’
Type of Plant: A gently spreading perennial cranesbill geranium, hardy in Zones 5 to 8, and thriving in full sun to part shade.
Why I Love/Hate this plant: I love this plant for use as “socks and shoes” for shrubs and taller perennials. The pink flowers are sweet in June and the leaves are attractive before and after flowering.
A Word to the Wise: Plant this perennial geranium in soil that has been amended with some compost and loosened a bit to give the roots the opportunity to push into the area easily. After that, water every couple of weeks if it hasn’t rained. This is a trouble-free plant that will serve you well.
