Geranium nodosum Svelte Lilac is an excellent specimen for shady spots, though it will need regular watering while establishing itself. Trumpet shaped flowers are soft lilac with distinctive veins running along the petals. Foliage is tri-lobed, mid-green and glossy when young. Nodosum’s can be slow to establish and take a while to put good roots down but they are worth the wait.

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, snails and rabbits 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.

 

Remove faded flowers and foliage to encourage fresh growth and further flowering throughout the season. Lift and divide large, congested clumps in the spring.
