Geranium cantabrigiense ‘Karmina’
This tried and true perennial creates a low-growing carpet that is filled with masses of rosey-lavender-pink flowers that stand atop mounded foliage. ‘Karmina’ is prized for its vigorous growth habit and can be used in borders, containers, and window boxes. It is a nice understory plant when combined with Gaura ‘Siskiyou Pink’ or Salvia ‘Wendy’s Wish’.
Geranium cantabrigiense ‘Karmina’ grows 6-12 inches tall and 18-23 inches wide and does best if planted in full to part sun (afternoon shade inland). It blooms from spring through fall and the foliage turns an attractive shade of bronze-red as the weather cools. The fragrant blossoms attractive beneficial pollinators, however the rabbits and deer stay away. Sunset Western Gardener Zones 1-24.
