Geranium x oxonianum 'Claridge Druce'
|Leaves are fairly large, sharply cut, and often purple-tinged in spring |
Another cranesbill, similar to many others we grow. This one is a hybrid of G. endressii and G. versicolor. Its pink flowers are patterned with darker veins. In our garden, it doesn't grow taller than 18" - so it makes a good front-of-the-border plant for our rambunctious back yard island.
||pink (late spring)
||ordinary garden soil
||reputed to come true from seed; self-seeds sparingly in our garden.

|Seed ripens||extended period, starting late June|
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|Charles S. Miller||Jun 02, 2015||Where can I purchase many different varieties of geraniums (cranesbill)? I'm particularly interested in Okey Dokey, Carol, Patricia, and Clarence Druce. Thanks.|
I'm sorry – I don't provide referrals to plant sources, since I have no reason to recommend any one source.
