Geranium harveyi
“Silver Geranium”

Geranium harveyi “Silver Geranium” Geranium harveyi “Silver Geranium”

I'm so in love with this plant! A beautiful, tough, silvery groundcover for sun, forming a mat one foot high & 3' wide. The silvery, finely-cut leaves give your garden a sweet, soft look. My plants occasionally bloom in Summer with 1” purple flowers. They aren't profuse but that's fine with me as I love it for its foliage. It combines so well with other plants. I especially like it growing underneath Aeonium undulatum & next to Euphorbia characias 'Dwarf'. From South Africa, it is drought tolerant & does well with good drainage. Best in sun since in the shade it gets kind of lanky.
