|Geranium clarkei 'Kashmir White'|
Saturday, 30 July 2011
This is the second flowering for this plant; it started blooming in early summer, and I chopped it back when it had finished, and had this second flush. It is a carpeting Geranium and can spread rapidly on rhizomatous roots. It is perennial with divided leaves and loose clusters of cup-shaped flowers, white with pale lilac-pink veins. As with all Geraniums it is easy to propagate by division or by root cuttings or seed. It began to take over the bed that it was in a few years ago, so I dug it out. But, it decided it was going to stay, and from a piece of root that was left in the ground, has established itself once more.
