Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
GERANIUM x cantabrigiense 'Cambridge'
Cambridge Cranesbill, Cranesbill
Compact and evergreen, 'Cambridge' is a low carpeting herbaceous perennial that slowly spreads by creeping rhizomes. It is a selection of the hybrid between Dalmatian and bigroot geraniums, whose specific epithet (cantibrigense) is the botanical name for Cambridge, England, site of the hybrid's origin. In spring and early summer it bears bright pink, cup-like flowers above fragrant, lobed, glossy green leaves. No seeds are produced. The deeply lobed, frilly, semi-evergreen leaves often turn burgundy-red in fall.
A tough, deer and rabbit-resistant plant, 'Cambridge' grows best in full to partial sun and well-drained soil. It makes a great groundcover or frontal plant for the perennial border or cottage garden.
