Great ground-covering properties and a long flowering period make the Biokovo Geranium stand out from other varieties. A dwarf form of hardy cranesbill, the Biokovo Geranium produces scented, green foliage and delicate, white flowers tinged with pink from spring until mid-summer. With a spreading habit and growing to no taller than 6 to 8 inches, it is ideal for edging a border or a pathway. Come fall, its foliage turns a lovely autumnal red for some late-season interest.
The perennial Biokovo Geranium originates from the mountains of Eastern Europe and is unsurprisingly a tough plant once established. Flowering for weeks on end, it is perfectly suited for growing as part of a cottage garden scheme or equally in a dry woodland area. Being deer and rabbit resistant, it will survive most rural gardens and is even considered drought tolerant.
Biokovo Geranium Care
The Biokovo Geranium prefers to be grown in moist, but free-draining soil. It is an adaptable plant and can cope with full sun to almost complete shade. Although it is drought tolerant once established, this geranium needs to be regularly watered for at least the first season after planting. As with most hardy geraniums, it does not require additional fertilization unless it is grown on very poor soil.
To keep this geranium blooming for even longer, the faded blooms can be cut back to encourage rebloom. Being perennial, its growth will die back in winter, which can be cleared to make way for new growth in spring. Any unsightly foliage can be removed using clean and sharp secateurs.
Biokovo Geranium Spacing
This low-growing, carpet-forming geranium can spread and grow to an eventual 8 inches high by 18 inches wide. If grown for ground cover or mass planting, this Biokovo Geranium should be planted at 16 to 18 inches apart.
