This Bloomday is special, not because of what’s blooming in my garden, but because at the GB Fling last month in Seattle I got to meet Caro.
Geranium maculatum 'Espresso', cranesbill. A great plant for moist shade, it carpets the ground with loose mounds of deeply lobed, reddish-brown foliage. This provides a great backdrop for the pale lavender pink flowers which appear in late spring and early summer. Perfect for softening the edges of a path or the front of a border, they will flower best in a sunnier spot.
Another recent selection with very dark almost blood red of spikes of poker like flowers from summer onwards coming from mounds of tough green foliage.
