Flowers: June-October.  Plant in sun.  HxS 30x90cm

Geranium x riversleaianum ‘Russell Prichard’, one of my favourite cranesbill, produces low spreading mats of silky, grey-green leaves which are covered with vivid reddish-purple flowers all summer.  It is best grown in full sun at the front of a border.  It also makes good ground cover and tolerates dry soil so is great on banks or walls.  Slug and snail proof.  Semi-evergreen in milder winters.  AGM.  Hardiness rating H4. Pot size 9cm.

Care & Maintenance.

If you live in an area of high winter rainfall, as we do, it is beneficial to mulch the crown of the plant during winter.  Propagate using stem cuttings.
