Geranium x oxonianum ‘Wargrave Pink’
Geranium x oxonianum ‘Wargrave Pink’ is a medium sized, semi-evergreen perennial, perfect for a pot, a border or ground cover. Neat, long-flowering and hardy, this clump-forming geranium is loved by pollinators and will add a splash of pretty pink to your garden.
A profusion of roundish funnel-shaped flowers in a deep creamy pink arrive in summer. Each beautiful pink flower is enhanced by the intricate veins on its petals, etched out in a bolder pink. Flowering throughout the summer, it will fill any planting scheme with a wash of pink blooms for months on end.
The gorgeous dense foliage is made up of gently wrinkled, dainty lobed basal leaves. Look out for the distinctive beak-like seed-pods which elongate after pollination, give geraniums the common name Crane’s Bill.
Geranium x oxonianum ‘Wargrave Pink’ prefers any fertile soil (although do keep it away from waterlogged areas) and will happily grow in full sun or partial shade, and particularly enjoys dappled shade. It is semi-evergreen and in colder areas it may lose all its leaves in the autumn, however fresh growth will appear again in spring when the weather warms.
A vigorous grower and a self-seeder, Geranium x oxonianum ‘Wargrave Pink’ is a great option for naturalised planting schemes in, and works well as a weed-suppressing ground-cover. It is also a really good plant for a city garden, a patio, woodland planting or formal border, in fact it’s happy pretty much anywhere.
