Re: Hardy Geranium?

_The Gardener's Guide To Growing Hardy Geraniums_ by Trevor Bath and Joy
Jones says that Geranium x Lindavicum are crosses between G.argenteum and
G.cinereum. They dislike winter wet which causes the crown to rot unless
they are covered. It describes G x l. "Apple Blossom" (also known as "Jenny
Bloom") as low growing , 6 inch (15 cm) with neat tufts of deeply cut,
silvery leaves. Lovely lightly veined flowers of palest pink in summer.
Recommended for rock or scree gardens.

Portland OR,  Zone 8
