One of the tallest and most vigorous varieties, Geranium Pratense Mrs Kendall Clark ground cover is a bushy mound forming perennial, with elegant flat, ice-blue flowers, marbled with white veins, which are held above a clump of divided, mid-green leaves that become tinted with red before dying back in Autumn. Flowering from July to September, these hardy plants are ideal for suppressing weeds at the front of a mixed or herbaceous border and will keep your bees and other pollinators happy for months!
Geranium Pratense Mrs Kendall Clark are vigorous plants with a self-branching habit and tolerate heat better when in part shade. They make superb ground cover but are incredibly versatile and are equally happy in pots, troughs or trailing over tubs. Perfect for planting in rose gardens and wildflower planting schemes, or in perennial borders in cottage gardens. Try planting in a mixed border with Nepeta, Salvia’s or Lavender.
