Hardy perennial geraniums are not to be confused with tender pelargoniums (pot geraniums). Not the same plant at all. True geraniums - often called cranesbill because of the shape of their seeds - are completely hardy and will reward you year after year. Most varieties flower in June/July and can be persuaded to do it again later in the year if the whole plant is cut back hard immediately after flowering. For those of you who don't like being that brutal take a look at Rozanne which flowers non-stop from June until November frosts. Many of our geraniums are shade tolerant or shade-loving which is great. However, they are also slug, rabbit and deer-proof, which makes them essential components in our range of herbaceous plants for sale.
