Geranium x magnificum
Geranium x magnificum

This hardy geranium certainly lives up to its name with its magnificent display of violet-blue flowers in mid-summer. Very vigorous and prolific growing, but it does have a short flowering season.
Combines well with blue grasses, hostas, or even pink and yellow roses. It can tolerate some shade but it does colour better in sun.
Hardy geraniums are the most popular perennials in the UK. They’re tough and easy to grow, most flower for months on end, and many smother weeds effectively. The first geraniums were discovered over 350 years ago by explorers who were looking for medicinal plants in Africa. The genus name is derived from the Greek geranós, meaning crane.
