Geranium sanguineum 'Alpenglow'

Common Name: Hardy Geranium, Bloody Cranesbill

Cup-shaped, lavender-pink flowers appear above a carpet of deeply lobed, green foliage from late spring thru midsummer. This is an especially strong grower and long-blooming selection, and it will benefit from being deadheaded.

The intricately cut leaves are green for most of the season but earn their namesake from the brilliant crimson-red they turn in fall.

This species is so adaptable that it handles both hot summer and cold winter climates with ease.
