Geranium

 

Geranium (Hardy)

Geraniums are hardy and mainly perennial and are used in a number of garden situations such as ground cover or rockery plants. Geraniums are easily grown and can transform problem places such as dry shade, hot sunny banks or moist shade. It can be confusing because "geranium" is also the common name of members of the genus Pelargonium, which has a separate encyclopedia entry and are NOT hardy.
