(Geranium dalmaticum 'Album' x Geranium macrorrhizum 'Album')
Large white flowers with broad, overlapping petals on a low, evergreen carpet. Ideal for groundcover among deciduous shrubs or edging borders. Average soil in sun or part shade. 20cm.
When 'St Ola' was relaesed it marked a leap forward with the Geranium x cantabrigiense group as the previous cultivars all had smaller flowers and they were not clean colours (mauve-pink and pinkish white). 'St Ola' has a good sized pure white flower that is held well above the foliage to 20cm, or perhaps a little more if it is happy. The foliage is a good rich green and shows the bright white flowers off very well.
Ideal for any drained soil in sun or light or part shade, it makes a good evergreen carpet under deciduous shrubs or trees or can be used on the sunny side of evergreen hedges, shrubs etc. Hardy.
