General description

Geranium x cantabrigiense ‘Cambridge’ makes a great evergreen groundcover by creating a dense mat that helps reduce weed growth in the garden. Mauve flowers flushed with pink, make a show in late spring to early summer and are attractive to butterflies.

It is a very hardy plant and its low spreading habit makes it the perfect filler for perennial or shrub plantings. Geranium x cantabrigiense ‘Cambridge’ works well growing in front of taller perennials like Astrantia, Asters, and Solidago. It looks good texturally alongside ornamental grasses such as Helictotrichon sempervirens, the blue oat grass and the tall and striking, Stipa gigantea.
