Bursting with flowers, hardy geraniums also feature lush foliage, which adds valuable texture to 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 moderately fertile, well-drained soil. A few species are even reliably drought-tolerant in normal summer conditions.

There is a hardy geranium to suit most garden situations. Some do incredibly well in sunny borders, while others prefer woodland settings. Some make fabulous weed-choking ground covers, while others are well suited to containers or rock gardens. Most bloom profusely over a very long season, extending from spring to fall.

There are about 300 species and many cultivars and hybrids in the world. Suppose you are looking for the best hardy geranium that will sail through the challenges of the seasons. In that case, you may want to consider any of these top-performing varieties in terms of ornamental qualities, ease of growth, hardiness, and disease and pest resistance. As you will note, most of them have received the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society!
