southern geranium


Pam,
You said most geraniums can't cut it down south.  There are several that
aren't hardy here in Z5.  Some are only hardy to Zone 9, believe it or not.
However, today I used a 1/2 price coupon on a new one called Geranium
yoshinoi 'Confetti', that is only hardy to Z6, (I'll give it a try at 1/2
price!)  and Forest Farm says: "one to try in the south".

"Description :
There was a celebration in Geranium land and the new leaves of this low
mounder (to 8"x 30"wide) are covered with confetti-like splashes and topped
by small pink flowers; one to try in the south. S-PSh/Med "

Chiltern says:
"From Honshu, the main island of Japan, comes this attractive and useful
species, fairly new to cultivation in this country. An excellent plant for
ground cover under trees, it forms a creeping mat of attractive, small,
marbled leaves and bears over a long period from summer into autumn
numerous, one inch, bright pink flowers veined with a deeper shade. 6 ins"
