Geranium sessiliflorum
‘Nigricans’
“Dwarf Black Cranesbill”

 Geranium sessiliflorum ‘Nigricans’ “Dwarf Black Cranesbill”

Ever so useful, this rare black-leaved Geranium stays compact & tidy year around, so it’s ideal for adding color contrast to mixed containers (it won’t take over) & edging. Coppery, blue-black, small scalloped leaves form a dense mound up to 8” x 10,” the perfect foil for brighter neighbors. Adaptable to most soils, it’s also evergreen in our mild climate. Cute little white flowers in Summer. For colorful front of bed foliar contrast, combine with silvery Cerastium candidissimum & blue leaved Dianthus gratianopolitanus. Self-sows.
