Product information "Geranium macrorrhizum 'Spessart'"

Groundcover cranesbill is a strong growing variety with winter green foliage that releases an aromatic, spicy fragrance. This cushion-like perennial presents its whitish pink flowers from May to July; 'Spessart' is a very robust variety that can cover large areas quickly and thus suppresses weeds. It is very hardy, disease resistant and snails do not like this plant because of its ethereal fragrance.
Since the groundcover cranesbill is native to mountainous regions, nutrient-poor, well-drained soils will suffice, but of course it grows well in any normal garden soil. This plant loves both sun and partial shade; similar to all of its relatives, it does not like waterlogging.

The groundcover cranesbill 'Spessart' is ideal for slope stabilisation in public areas or for greening open areas, in order to keep them easy to maintain.
