Geranium ID

LucidLucid Posts: 385

Hi everyone,

We've got a geranium that was already in the garden when we moved in and I just wanted to see if anyone knew for sure which type it is? I'm wondering if it's Geranium × oxonianum 'Wargrave Pink':

Does anyone know if that's right, or if not what it might be?

Thanks,

    Pretty sure that's Wargrave Pink. Some say hardy geraniums are weeds... I am quite fond of them and have several varieties in my garden. 

    My garden and I live in South Wales.

    Geraniums - not weeds, that is!

    Yes, i've got it in mine. It's rather wild so got a chop back at the end of July. It's now coming back and already flowering again.

    Thanks very much for confirming everyone.

    mark56 - we have two (one on each side of our pond) and they did outgrow their space this year so I'm guessing we should have cut them back sooner. Would it be a bit late now to cut back and hope for more flowers?

    See original post

     Hi Lucid, it should be fine to chop back now especially if the flowering is slowing down. I also remove the seed heads when the petals have fallen to encourage more blooms

    Thanks mark56, I'll give it a go. Is it the same for all hardy geraniums?
