GERANIUM x cantabrigiense 'Biokovo'
Biokovo Cranesbill Geranium, Cranesbill
Compact and evergreen, the Biokovo cranesbill geranium is a low herbaceous perennial that slowly spreads by underground shoots, or runners. This hybrid between dalmatian and bigroot cranesbill, is botanically named after Cambridge, England. In spring and early summer it bears white cup-like flowers tinged in pink above fragrant, lobed, glossy green leaves. No seeds are produced. The deeply lobed, frilly leaves often turn burgundy-red in fall.
A tough, deer and rabbit-resistant plant, 'Biokovo' needs full to partial sun and fertile, well-drained soil. It makes a great groundcover or border plant for the cottage or woodland garden.
