Geranium endressii is one of the parent plants of the x oxonianums, the other one being Geranium versicolor. Its flowers are dark pink and become darker with age, fading in reverse. It is a good, strong growing garden plant although not seen so commonly. It can be difficult to tell a true endressii from an oxonianum though, as many are similar shades. Nevertheless, endressii is much like versicolor in that it will tolerate some shade, grow in most soils and is good for pollinators and filling gaps.

Hardy Geraniums are one of the most diverse genera of herbaceous perennials. It is possible to find a Geranium to suit most parts of your garden, from the vast range of species and varieties available. They complement most other plants beautifully and, chosen wisely, can provide a continuation of colour in the garden from spring through to early winter.

Please note that the heights, spreads and flowering periods mentioned are approximate, as they can be affected by your soil type, light levels and other various conditions that may surround the plant.
