Geranium Biokovo, PERENNIAL BAREROOT PLANT
Rock gardens or border fronts. Mass for ground cover. Edging. Containers.
Biokovo' typically grows 6-10" high and features masses of 5-petaled white flowers (3/4" diameter) which are tinged with pink at the base of each petal (pink throat-like centers) and which have pronounced pink stamens. The overall flower effect is that of a very pale pink geranium. Blooms in late spring. 'Biokovo' runners extend further than those of the original hybrid, and therefore do not form as dense a foliage carpet. This cultivar was a naturally occurring hybrid which was discovered in the Biokova Mountains in Croatia.
Planting Instructions: Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Propagated by seeds and division of roots. Should be transplanted from the seedbed in early spring. Prefers full sun and well-drained soil.Common Name: hardy geranium Type: Herbaceous perennial Family: Geraniaceae Zone: 5 to 8 Height: 0.50 to 1.00 feet Spread: 0.50 to 1.00 feet Bloom Time: May to June Bloom Description: White tinged with pink and pink stamens Sun: Full sun to part shade Water: Medium Maintenance: Low Suggested Use: Ground Cover, Naturalize Flower: Showy Attracts: Butterflies Tolerate: Rabbit, Deer
