About This Image

'Geranium Ballerina' Semi-evergreen, rosetted perennial with spreading flowering stems. H 6in, S 12in
Fully hardy, has cup-shaped flowers, pale pink strongly veined with purple, or pure white, on lax stems in late spring and summer. basal leaves are rounded, deeply divided, soft and grey-green.
Grows nicely as a ground cover in borders, cottage gardens, woodland gardens and rockeries.

These Geraniums or Crane's Bill, should not be confused with the half-hardy Pelargonium which is popularly referred to as 'geranium'.

Many thanks to Gav, Carol, Talsi and Jas for your very kind comments on this image. Jas, it's one of the ones we put into the pub garden a couple of years ago. I have managed to find another for my new garden at home, just hope it grows as well. Chriss:)
