Geranium ‘Biokovo’ spreads to form a carpet-like ground cover of basal foliage above which many showy pinkish-white flowers wave. The foliage has a pleasantly intense floral scent when touched or rubbed. Over time, old growth blooms less vigorously, so dividing may be helpful to promote good bloom. The guides say this is a zone 5 plant, but we have never had any dieback of this plant over many Central New York winters. Deer don’t appear to like it.
