Geranium sanguineum has multi-lobed, almost threadlike leaves on a thick mat of stems that spreads vigorously to form a groundcover. It blooms prolifically from late May to frost, producing pale pink flowers with darker pink veining. It is pretty much insdestructible. We started with a few plants, and using divisions have it all over the garden, and have given away scads to friends and neighbors. It will tolerate full sun but also thrives in part shade. It is an easy, showy, front-of-the-border plant that will fill in any blank space. This is one of our first perennial garden plants and we still love it for its ease of care and continuous bloom. Even a black thumb can grow this plant. Deer won’t touch it in our garden.
