Geranium pratense 'Dark Reiter'

Hardy Geranium

This attractive dark-leafed selection forms a compact mound of finely cut, plum purple foliage. From early to late summer, leafy scapes carry clusters of vibrant lilac blue flowers which contrast superbly with the dark foliage. It makes a colorful addition to combination containers or the front of the garden.
Hardy geraniums are wonderful filler plants for any landscape, either residential or commercial. They blend nicely with most other perennials and offer continuous color throughout the summer months.
