Nothing like what most gardeners think of as ‘geraniums’, and sometimes called ‘cranesbills’ instead, the Max Frei Hardy Geranium is an outstanding hardy ground cover plant for all locations in your garden. It forms a low mat of small, round but deeply-lobed green leaves with a distinctive aroma, which turn red in fall when grown in sun in colder zones. Spring and early summer bring a profusion of open, cup-shaped flowers of a rich magenta-pink, adding a sparkling and bright touch to the front of your beds. The flowers are often visited by butterflies. Grow it spilling over paths and hard surfaces, in terraced walls, in rock gardens and on slopes, and in planter boxes too. Virtually maintenance-free and reliable, this plant is exactly what good ground cover should be. It has good tolerance for heat and humidity, making it a top variety for the southeast.

  • Low carpet of round leaves may turn red in fall
  • Covered in magenta-pink flowers in spring and summer
  • Grows almost anywhere, from dry sun to full shade
  • Perfect ground cover for anywhere and everywhere in your garden
  • Very low-maintenance and easy to grow

The Max Frei Hardy Geranium is very adaptable, growing in full sun, partial shade and even in full shade. The mat of foliage is weed-resistant, and stays neat and attractive. A light trim after blooming can be useful to encourage dense, compact growth, and remove any old flower stalks. Grows in almost any soil that is well-drained, including poor soil and urban gardens. Thrives best in soils that are generally rich and moist, but grows fine almost anywhere that isn’t wet. Deer and rabbits leave it alone, pests and diseases normally don’t bother it, and established plants are drought tolerant.
