Lavender blue flowers with a tiny white eye and deep purple veining bloom for an exceptionally long time from late spring thru midsummer and then again from early fall until frost. The compact clumps of lacy green foliage provide a wonderful background for these flowers and retain their healthy look all season. In fall, the leaves turn vivid red-orange.

Hardy geraniums are wonderful filler plants for any landscape, either residential or commercial. They blend nicely with most other perennials and offer continuous color throughout the summer months.
