True geraniums - not the big showy annuals (actually called Pelargoniums) - are fantastic plants that provide near-year-round interest in the garden. The foliage of the geraniums in our gardens remain green through November before turning the most beautiful shade of crimson in December. They are extremely easy to grow in average garden soil in full sun to part shade.

Armenian cranesbill is amongst the largest of the hardy species growing up to 48 inches. Showy magenta flowers with black centers and dark veins repeat all summer. Large, heart shaped leaves turn crimson in fall.

Note: this tall plant may need some support.
