The usual form with low evergreen, textured, leaves. White flowers veined lilac. Indispensible. Sunny, 20cm.

A classic edging plant for pathsides from cottage gardens to the grandeur of Stately Homes.  The low growing clumps of sage-like, felted, greyish green leaves are valued for their near evergreen-ness in the garden and desired by flower arrangers for their arrangements.  In early summer the white flowers with lilac veins are produced in profusion if the plant is grown in free draining soil in full sun without too much fertility.  If you pamper Geranium renardii with plenty of moisture and fertiliser you will be rewarded with better leaves but few flowers.

Best grown in full sun in a well drained soil and ideal for the edges of borders against hard paths like brick or paving slabs.  Somehow the foliage looks better against hard surfaces than it does against the softness of gravel or lawn.

Caucasus.  This cultivar name given to distinguish this white flowered form from other, blue flowered, forms in the wild.
