Geranium (Hardy Geranium or Crane’s Bill) ‘Wargrave Pink’

Wargrave Pink’ is an evergreen perennial with a clump-forming habit, that bears lovely, little clear pink flowers. It forms mounds of deeply cut, glossy green foliage that is topped with cup-shaped flowers in various shades of pink or magenta. This lovely geranium is extremely vigorous and long flowering. Its mid-green leaves are divided into five lobes.

This particular geranium can be spotted in just about every photo of a British garden and it has proven to be widely adaptable in other areas as well. Planted in any moderately fertile soil except waterlogged in either full sun or partial shade. It can be thuggish, but given space is a useful groundcover plant for a cottage garden or herbaceous border. It self-seeds freely, too.

General Information +

Botanical: Geranium x oxonianum 'Wargrave Pink'

Common: Hardy Geranium

Family: Geraniaceae

General Characteristics: This hardy geranium cultivar is a bushy, compact, clump-forming perennial which typically grows in a creeping mound to 12-18" tall with a similar spread. Features 5-petaled, clear pink flowers (to 1" diameter) with notched petals. Flowers bloom in late spring (May-June) in hot summer climates, but may bloom throughout the summer in cooler northern climates. Sparse summer rebloom may occur in some locations, if plants are cut back hard after flowering. Palmate, deeply lobed, medium green leaves (2-3" across).

Use: Banks and slopes, beds and borders, city, containers, cottage/informal, under-planting. 'Wargrave Pink' is also a quick spreader and makes a wonderful groundcover or mass planting. It is a good low maintenance plant.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Pests or Diseases: No serious insect or disease problems.

Planting Instructions: Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Tolerates some drought, but prefers moist, humusy, well-drained soils, particularly in hot summer climates. Intolerant of the heat and humidity of the deep South. Cut back stems hard/shear plants down to new growth immediately after flowering to revitalize and encourage a possible light summer rebloom. If not cut back, plants tend to sprawl and become somewhat weedy in appearance.
