Plant Features

Espresso Hardy Geranium Plant produces wonderfully colored showy lavender-pink blossoms; however, it is the foliage for which this variety is most widely grown. Having distinct café au lait coloration, the 6 inch leaves are deeply cut, forming a loosely clumping mound atop which the 1 1/2-inch blossoms dance for 6 to 7 weeks. This Cranesbill does not normally re-bloom, so deadheading is not necessary, though the foliage will maintain that unusual color in the garden through to the first frost, the flowers giving way to distinctive beak-shaped seed capsules adding even more fall and winter interest.

Companion Planting: Crocosmia, Delphinium, Dicentra, Euphorbia, Geum, Hemerocallis

Beautiful foliage!

I can't wait for the flowers on the Espresso True Geranium next spring to bloom, but I bought it because of its beautiful foliage. It adds a lot to my Terra Cotta stacking planter.
