This is a most valuable genus, providing colour over a long period from early summer. Many varieties are suitable for the herbaceous border, but there are also many that are of a size appropriate for rock garden use.
Geranium nodosum is the 'knotted cranesbill', with mid-green leaves and purplish-pink flowers; great for ground cover in dry shade.
