Geranium renardii - Renard's Geranium

Geranium renardii is a species geranium slow enough growing to be worthy of a shaded rock garden. Our Geranium renardii has now been in for 6 years and is 8" tall and has spread to nearly a foot wide. Heat of Summer, cold of Winter don't seem to make much difference, Geranium renardii just keeps going. Geranium renardii will not tolerate overly wet conditions, but so long as there is drainage seems comfortable in most any soil. Geranium renardii is native to the Caucasus Mountains. When not in bloom Geranium renardii has scalloped cobbled leaves that keep the garden interest up. Spring brings out these striking white flowers with purple veins. Geranium renardii was unphased by our cold snap in the low teens.
