Cranesbill 'Wargrave Pink', Geranium Endressii 'Wargrave Pink', Geranium x oxonianum 'Wargrave', Geranium 'Wargrave Pink'


Tough, vigorous and incredibly pretty, Geranium x oxonianum 'Wargrave Pink' (Cranesbill) is a superb hardy geranium cultivar with luminous, salmon pink to silvery pink, open-faced flowers from late spring to early fall. Flowers are small (1 in. or 2.5 cm) but abundant and rise atop mounds of deeply lobed, medium green leaves. Bushy, compact and semi-evergreen, this hardy Geranium is reliable, easy to grow and provides long-lasting color in the garden. It is a good weed-choker and a useful ground cover plant. In herbaceous borders, it is particularly attractive with blue or rosy-carmine Lupines (Lupinus polyphyllus) or with French Lavender (Lavandula stoechas).

  • Geranium 'Wardgrave Pink' is a hybrid of Geranium endressii and Geranium versicolor. Self-seeds moderately.
  • Clump-forming, this perennial grows in a creeping mound up to 18-24 in. tall and wide (45-60 cm). It requires very little maintenance!
  • Performs best in full sun or part shade, in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils. Tolerates some drought but prefers moist, humusy soils. Attractive to butterflies, but deer and rabbit resistant!
  • A perfect border plant, it is a spectacular addition to beds, borders, banks and slopes, ground cover, cottage gardens, city gardens, underplanting roses and shrubs. Great in containers too!
  • This Geranium is generally not subject to serious pest or disease issues. Watch for vine weevil, sawflies, slugs and snails and powdery mildew
  • Remove flowered stems and old leaves to encourage the production of fresh leaves and flowers. Propagate by division in spring or propagate by basal cuttings in early to mid spring and root with bottom heat
