Geranium ibericum resembles G x magnificum with its hairy, palmate foliage and dark veined violet-blue flowers. Geranium ibericum has a longer flowering period than x magnificum however and tolerates dry conditions very well.
Geraniums are herbaceous perennials and for the most part they are super easy to grow and fuss free. They require minimal maintenance, and, in most cases, you will be able to propagate them by division and have many more plants in next to no time.
Not only are geraniums fuss free, but they are also generally pest and disease resistant. They are, once established, drought tolerant and even slugs and snails turn their noses up at them.
With all this in mind, attractive flowers and foliage and long flowering periods what’s not to love about geraniums? They must be one of the most forgiving and enduring yet generous plants around.
