This geranium is versatile and thrives in both full sun and part shade while being relatively heat tolerant. Geraniums are dependable returning each spring with same vigor and health as the previous season, with no maintenance required. They’re well suited for edging, rock/alpine gardens, mass plantings in small areas, hard to water hills and slopes, gardens and borders and containers. Snip off the spent flowers and shear the top foliage back to new growth to stimulate rebloom. Generally, no division is needed but you may do so in spring or fall if desired. This collection includes 2 each Max Frei and Striatum. The flowers of Max Frei are vibrant carmine-rose and Striatum produces pale pink blossoms with intricate veining for a real show stopper.
