Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
GERANIUM x cantabrigiense 'Karmina'
Biokovo Karmina Cranesbill, Cranesbill
Compact and evergreen, this low carpeting herbaceous perennial slowly spreads by creeping rhizomes. It is a selection of the hybrid between Dalmatian and bigroot geraniums, whose specific epithet (cantibrigense) is named for Cambridge, England, the site of the hybrid's origin. In spring and early summer it bears deep lavender-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, 'Karmina' grows best in full to partial sun and fertile soil with good drainage. It makes a great herbaceous groundcover and is ideal fot the front of perennial borders and cottage gardens.
