Geranium Storm Chaser ground cover is a compact bushy mound forming perennial that will deliver saucer-shaped, striking pink flowers with a deep purple-magenta centres and veins from June to August, (often with a second flush of flowers in Autumn if deadheaded) each year, rising from soft grayish green foliage. 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 Storm Chaser are vigorous plants with a spreading 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 and Agapanthus.

Super low maintenance, as a ground cover plant Geranium Storm Chaser (Cranesbill) will tolerate any soil other than waterlogged areas and will be happy in full sun, partial shade or full shade. In midsummer rejuvenate plants that are beginning to look jaded, by removing old, flowered stems and leaves, and split the clumps in spring if they are getting too large.
As a rough guide when planting Geranium Storm Chaser as ground cover – 4 plants per square metre is adequate with a little patience, 6 will give better coverage, and 9-12 will make a weed supressing carpet very quickly.
