Best Of The Bunch.

Cranesbill Geranium These vigorous geraniums will cover ground faster than weeds and produce some of the prettiest summer flowers in shades from white to purple, making them ideal candidates for the front of the border.

They will grow in any reasonable garden soil in sun or shade and should suppress weeds effectively, as well as looking good under trees, although you may have to pull clumps out from time to time to keep them contained.

Good varieties include Rozanne Blue, Johnson's Blue and Wargrave Pink.

The soft mound shapes need partners with strong outlines, such as phormiums or irises.

These hardy perennials are also used as groundcover on banks, between shrubs or under roses.
