The scoop on Geranium Sanguineum Stratum

A light pink flowering sport of the classic sanguineum geranium, this mounding perennial is compact, just 6-8" tall, making it ideal for edgings. Also sold as 'Prostratum' and 'Lancastriense', stratum is a low maintenance winner, thrives in a wide range of light conditions and responds to autumn frosts with foliage that turns an attractive red. Pink blooms are accented with showy red veins. Has earned the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit (i.e. it's been trialed and judged by horticultural experts at one of the world's most prestigious gardening societies).

Why Grow Perennial Geraniums/Cranesbills?

  • These perennials are some of the easiest, most reliable garden plants
  • After big early season flush, geraniums continue to bloom lightly through summer, then deliver a fresh flush in September
  • Rabbits and deer tend to be uninterested in cranesbills
