A colorful, mounding perennial, the New Hampshire Geranium has the ability to thrive in a range of soil types, withstand hot sun,  and need little supplemental irrigation. Dissected leaves provide landscape interest, but the real draw are the plant’s beautiful purple blossoms.  Magenta-purple flowers appear in late spring and persist well into the summer. For a final show each year, the leaves often turn a brilliant crimson-red.

It is also deer and rabbit resistant and attracts bees and butterflies. A creeping habit makes the New Hampshire geranium an excellent choice for a massed planting. Its ability to withstand hot sun and cold winter conditions makes it quite versatile. Whether in an alpine or rock garden or used as a woodland border, edging, or groundcover, it fills in quickly to create a bushy but fine-textured interest.

New Hampshire Geranium Care

The New Hampshire Geranium prefers fertile, well-drained soils but does tolerate drier, poorer soils. It requires a site with at least 4 hours of direct sun daily to thrive. Once established, the geranium is fairly drought tolerant, so it is often recommended for “waterwise” landscapes. It typically requires about half an inch of moisture weekly, so may need supplemental irrigation during extended dry spells.

A light pruning to remove spent blooms after the first flowering encourages reblooming. If old stems flop over after the first blooming or in midsummer and regrow from the base, the old stems can be cut just above the soil line to maintain a tidier appearance. After plants enter dormancy in the fall, remove dead leaves and stems.

New Hampshire Geranium Spacing

The New Hampshire Geranium grows low to the ground and spreads slowly by underground runners. It reaches a spread of 12 to 15 inches, so bear this in mind when spacing for massed plantings or using the geranium as a filler plant between other specimens. It can also be divided every few years.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
