Bursting with flowers, hardy geraniums also enjoy a lush foliage which adds valuable texture in the garden. Incredibly tough, pest and disease resistant, they give a lot and require very little. Most hardy geraniums are ridiculously easy to grow. All they require is a moderately fertile, well-drained soil. A few species are even reliably drought tolerant in normal summer conditions.
Many hardy geraniums form large mounds or upright vase-shaped clumps that are perfect for beds and borders. Planted as specimens or in small groups, they are brilliant at filling in gaps, covering otherwise bare and boring soil, and most keep on flowering month after month.
To beautify your landscape, there is a broad array of colors and textures to choose from. If you are looking for a beautiful, low-maintenance, hardy geranium that will sail through the challenges of the seasons, you may want to consider these top performing varieties. As you will note, some of them have received the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society!
