Geranium Mavis Simpson

Cranesbill Mavis Simpson

A very pretty cranesbill discovered at Kew and named for one of the gardeners, Geranium Mavis Simpson is a low, spreading, mat-forming, semi-evergreen, herbaceous perennial. The lobed, rounded leaves are grey-green and downy, giving a silvery effect, and persist well into winter in milder areas. From June to October, flat, single, rose-pink flowers with darker veins and a silvery sheen are borne, set off beautifully by the foliage; the flowers are very good for bees. The stems spread widely, but are not invasive, as they don’t root in. Cranesbill Mavis Simpson holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
