Geranium pratense 'Striatum'
A geranium worthy of Jackson Pollock.
A palette of mauve and white is splashed and dashed across the delicate petals with gay abandon.
Each flower is a unique combination of drips, dots and splashes. Very exuberant, deserving a prominent position in the border.
It blooms in early summer and may bloom again if the spent flowers are sheared off.
A wonderful mat forming ground cover plant for well drained soil. If soggy, the roots will rot. Meet this requirement and Geranium pratense are trouble free, long lived, and low maintenance.
