Common: Hardy Geranium
General Characteristics: Best grown as a ground cover. Also effective in border fronts or rock gardens. Hardier than the hardy average for crane's-bills, 'Biokovo' is not fussy about soil conditions. Humusy with good drainage is perferred, but less perfect soils will prove adequate. It can be a bit aggressive, so not a good neighbor for smaller perennials. It doesn't like excess dampness. It will not bloom in the shade, but wants sun to part sun. Geranium 'Biokovo', produces white flowers with light pink veins and stamens. With its beautiful dark green foliage, it has a plant width of 12-18" and a height of 6-8". This Geranium needs to be cut back in early summer for repeat bloom time in the fall. 'Biokovo' Geranium, being drought tolerant, needs a full sun area with some shade in the afternoon.
For best results, plant in a dry to moist area in a well drained site. The Geranium family is well known for its stunning fall colors that include reds, oranges, and yellows. It is a superb plant for cottage gardens, container growing, borders or informal borders in mass plantings. There is an attraction to bees and butterflies and it is very disease and deer resistant.
