Geranium Sue Crug
G. Sue Crug (Cranesbill) is a versatile and undemanding free-flowering perennial, grown for its combination of textured foliage and lustrous flowers. Sue Crug boasts lightly toothed, veined and hairy mid green leaves. For most of the year, the foliage stays tidy, and cushion- like but does eventually spread to around 100 cm. I like to see it scrambling around plants but if you prefer the foliage can be kept compact by a trim back, feed, and water after the first flush of flowering.
From summer the flowers become a focal point. The flowers appear delicate and dainty, they are, however much the opposite, staying vibrant and vigorous all throughout the season. They are coloured a gorgeous pink, with the most eye-catching purple veining.
This long-lived perennial thrives will in most soil conditions providing it is not water- logged. Prefers full sun but will tolerate partial shade.
THIS PLANT IS WINTER DORMANT IN AREAS THAT ARE PRONE TO FROSTS.
