Let’s start with the fascinating foliage. Yes, the deeply cut lobed and dark hues of this desirable cultivar really do earn that top spot!
A mature stand of Espresso Geranium adds a deliciously rich burst of boldness. Leaves emerge from a thick rhizome that forms colonies making an excellent groundcover or mass planting. Plant them 12 inches apart for a tight groundcover that easily enhances your space with a minimum of effort.
Of course, Espresso Geranium also develops a froth of light pinky-purple, saucer-shaped blooms. Held on stalks above the foliage, these beautiful blooms start in late spring and continue into summer.
The energetic flower power acts as a clarion call for butterflies in your neighborhood. And you’ll feel proud to use a modern native cultivar to support our essential pollinator populations with nectar, too!
Never jittery, Espresso Geranium brings a mellow, tranquil vibe to your environment. You’ll find a zillion places to tuck them here and there…they’ll thrive in the edge of the woods, or in a woodland setting. Light Shear in summer after bloom
