Geranium wlassovianum (Cranesbill)

Cranesbill, Siberian Geranium, Hardy Geraniums


One of the first hardy geraniums to flower and one of the last to bloom, Geranium 'wlassovianum' is also noted for its attractive foliage throughout the growing season. The rounded, lobed, downy leaves emerge reddish purple in spring before turning dark green in summer and warming up to lovely shades of bright red and golden yellow in fall. Small, 1 in. (2.5 cm), deep purple, saucer-shaped blossoms with white centers and darker veins are held in loose clusters and produced from early summer to early fall.

  • Enjoying a good trailing habit, this geranium species is perfect for the front of the border where you can admire its handsome foliage.
  • Clump-forming, this deciduous perennial forms a leafy mound that reaches 18-24 in. in height and spread (45-60 cm). This sturdy performer is not only easy to grow, but it also requires very little maintenance and is pest and disease free!
  • Performs best in full sun or part shade, in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Prefers moist soils. Shade tolerant, it is attractive to butterflies, but deer and rabbit resistant.
  • Spectacular addition to beds, borders, cottage gardens, groundcovers, rock gardens, underplanting roses and shrubs and is an excellent choice as an edging plant.
