Geranium cantabrigiense 'Cambridge' Geranium cantabrigiense 'Cambridge'

An attractive, vigorous ground-cover plant whose shiny aromatic leaves are indicative of one of its parents Geranium Macrorrhizum. This parental lineage has also passed on its tolerance of a wide range of soil conditions, including drought. This makes it a valuable plant for those "Will anything grow here?" areas of the garden.

Geranium Dalmaticum is the other parent. As a result Cambridge spreads in a compact manner, producing masses of warm pink flowers from early to midsummer.

Geranium cantabrigiense ‘Cambridge’ provides year round ground cover for partial shade and sunny positions, developing into an aromatic, glossy mid-green 6" mound, spreading to 18". Some of the leaves will develop autumnal hues at the end of the season.
 
Cambridge is suitable for planting in rock gardens and the front of borders, in both alkaline and acid, heavy and light soils.
