Use this low-growing variety for filling in spaces at the front of perennial beds and borders. Its charming, reddish purple blooms dangle above the mat-forming foliage in spring. Leaves turn brilliant crimson in autumn.
This is the true Geranium, not to be confused with the annual Pelargonium one sees everywhere in summer. Perennial Geraniums are lovely plants that grow in full sun or partial shade (required in the South and the warmer areas of the West) and need soil with good drainage.
