This is a lovely plant that just won't die!! I don't want it to but I've cut it back many times and it just keeps coming back! I love it but I'd like to take a cutting and have it in my front garden too just to see if it would grow through landscaping bark and add some green to my front garden
It's one of the hardy geraniums.
I agree with Dove, I have several different ones some pink some blue. Mine are moved about as they are such good ground over sometimes too good. As you've discovered they don't mind being cut back. Generally speaking they would be lifted and split to propagate them, I've found them easy to do.
Just get your spade in and hack a chunk out and replant Daniel. As long as it has a bit of root on it, it'll grow
If you want more of them take a chunk and divide it further and put the small pieces in pots to grow on for a while. Then you can plant them in other places. I've got a large piece that all had to come out - I recently dug out about a dozen bits with a rootball the size of a grapefruit and they're all growing in a large plastic container of soil till I can find homes for them. I have loads of other tiny bits - some have been stuck in the top of a dwarf wall at the foot of a fence surrounding my car parking area, and some have been put in small pots . All are growing happily. It's a very easy plant to manage
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
thanks guys loads of help, i'm gonna hack a lump off tomorrow and move it to the front garden
Mine flowered three days ago! I love this plant, please let us know what colour it is?
Never mind the Geranium sara, pray tell me what that handsome number BEHIND it is. It looks SOOO lovely
Phygelius 'Funfare Cream', it is stunning every year and it manages to flower 2 twice a year. It is very happy in my garden, I have a friend locally who just can not grow it.
Thank you Sara, I think I have a pink version of it but have not come across this one.
new one guys! what is this? I'm pretty sure its creeping jenny but I'm not 100%
I will put a photo up when my geranium flowers but we are struggling for sun here so it might be a while yet
Looks like Creeping Jenny to me too Daniel
