Geranium cantabrigiense 'Cambridge'
Excellent ground cover with trailing stems, attractive scented light green leaves and bright red fall color. Evergreen. Pink purple flowers appear between June and July.
An adaptable and diverse yet underused genus, not to be confused with the annual Geranium Pelargonium. Beak-like fruit gives it the common name of Cranesbill. Geraniums are known for their ornamental palmate leaves, showy single flowers, and ease of cultivation.
