Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
GERANIUM 'Sue Crûg'
Hybrid Cranesbill, Sue Crûg Cranesbill
Ornately lobed leaves create a pretty backdrop for the light violet flowers of ‘Sue Crûg.’ Blooming occurs from midsummer to fall, and the neat, mound-forming, perennial plants require little maintenance.
The stems and rounded, deeply dissected leaves of this geranium are medium green and hairy. In late fall the leaves turn shades of yellow and red. Its delicate flowers first appear when temperatures heat up in midsummer. The five-petaled blooms are light violet pink with darker veins and darker purple centers. The dry, brown fruits are shaped like bird's beaks and filled with seeds.
Grow ‘Sue Crûg’ in full sun and average garden soil that it well-drained. It is tolerant of alkaline soils and light drought. The foliage may begin to look ratty in hot summer weather. If this happens, trim back the old to allow a flush of new leaves and to coax it to rebloom in fall. This perennial is best placed in sunny perennial or rock gardens. This cultivar rarely self-sows. It if does, the offspring will not necessarily be true to parent.
