Happy Mother’s Day weekend! Wondering what would be a great perennial to add to any Mom’s garden? I love to use the perennial geraniums and was among those Perennial Plant Association members who voted for the winning 2015 Perennial Plant of the Year: Geranium cantabrigiense ‘Biokovo.’
When the snow melts, this plant jumps out of the ground already green. We simply remove any collected leaves with hand rakes, and the plant starts over for a new season. The soft flowers of ‘Biokovo’ brighten dry shady spots in May and June. By fall, the foliage turns interesting shades of bronze and red. No cutting back is needed. There are no pests or diseases that bother this plant. A true garden workhorse!
