Very large bright sky blue flowers mainly in late spring to midsummer, repeating later. Easy, in sun or light shade. 30cm.

One of the largest flowers to be found on a Hardy Geranium, when growing well these can get to 6cm diameter, or perhaps even a little more!  We have Geranium himalyense 'Baby Blue' growing on the edge of the path in our Molinia garden where it is the star performer during May to July when in flower but does get rather smothered by bigger plants behind later in the summer.  It doesn't seem to care!

Vigorous clumps that will spread with time to form a weed-excluding patch, ideal for the front of the border or under well spaced shrubs or trees (in the sun) to cover the ground.  Early into growth in the spring and retains it's foliage till mid-autumn, so even though it is deciduous it still provides a good groundcover.

Raised by Ingwersen's but probably not introduced until the former Axletree Nursery listed it in 1994.
