Prized for its vigorous groundcovering capabilities, 'Biokovo' will look good all season with little maintenance. In late spring, white flowers with pink sepals begin to appear and continue to bloom sporadically all summer long. The fragrant, glossy green leaves take on reddish tints in fall.
This species demands well-drained soil and protection from the hot afternoon sun.

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.
