A Pretty Duo with Clivia and Geranium

Plant Combinations, Spring Borders, Summer Borders


Awash with color, this garden path is beautifully framed with two spectacular evergreen perennial plants. Geranium maderense (Madeira Cranesbill), the largest geranium species, is underplanted with the stately Clivia miniata (Natal Lily). They combine their bouquets of showy purplish-pink and orange-red flowers over several months. When not in bloom, both plants remain attractive thanks to their lush foliage of palmately dissected or strap-shaped, dark green leaves which keep their good-looks year-round. Easy to grow, these two plants are prefect for frost-free, partly shaded gardens.

A charming garden path where it is a real pleasure to walk along. Geranium maderense and Clivia miniata are recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society. Enjoy!
