Geranium Macrorrhizum 'Bevan's Variety' is a strong-growing semi-evergreen perennial forming a wide mat of aromatic, rounded leaves, with deep purplish-pink flowers 2.5cm wide, the prominent sepals brownish-red

 

  • Family: Geraniaceae
  • Position: full sun or full shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast growing
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

     

Clusters of small, saucer shaped, crimson-purple flowers are held on slender stems above strong aromatic, light green leaves from May to September. This is one of the most versatile and useful geraniums, as it will even thrive in dry shade. The deeply cut, semi-evergreen foliage also spreads quickly to form low hummocks that suppress weeds for most of the year. It looks lovely with strongly shaped perennials, such as bergenia, or polemonium, or planted en masse under trees, and is also valuable for hiding the foliage of spring bulbs as they die down. The leaves often turn red in autumn, too.

 

Sowing advice: Sow at approximately 15-20°C (60-68°F) in pots or trays using a good quality compost, cover the seed lightly with a sprinkling of compost, or vermiculite. Place in a polythene bag or propagator and keep the soil moist at all times. When the seedlings are large enough to handle transfer and grow them on in cooler conditions. When the risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 14-21 days before planting out 30cm (12") apart.

 

Suitable for the Garden, vegetable garden, allotments, borders and containers. 

Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
