Pelargonium quercifolium - Oakleaf Geranium

Pelargonium quercifolium grows with great enthusiasm in every garden I have planted it. The Oak Leaf Geranium spreads by underground runners, grows 4-5 feet tall and gets very little supplemental water in my garden. The Oakleaf Geranium has a long blooming period. Blooming with pink flowers Spring through Fall. Pelargonium quercifolium spreads about 6 inches per year by runners and roots. If the branches touch ground with moisture present they root, this can improve their rate of advance significantly. The fragrant foliage smells like Almonds. Pelargonium quercifolium grows well in full sun into moderately dense shade. Pelargonium quercifolium does not seem fazed by soil type so long as it is not soggy. Pelargonium quercifolium was untouched by Winter temperatures in the mid teens.
