Geranium Patricia?

Posted by a2zmom Z6-NJ (My Page) on

Anyone growing this? How long is the bloom period, height and width, floppy or not?

Also, I was thinking of pairing this with Lychniss coronaria (rose campion), but I'm afraid it might clash. Any thoughts? (My lychniss won't bloom for another few weeks and I'd like to get everything planted before them if possible.)

I had it in a previous garden for several years. It is a relatively big Geranium, approximately 3' in both height and width. Mine did not flop open, but some stems were obviously close to the ground. It is a relatively long-bloomer, but not as long as the infamous 'Rozanne'.

I'm no designer, but yes, I would agree that it would likely clash with the Lychnis, although the silver foliage would be cool. What about the white-flowered version?

I planted a newer version of this Geranium called 'Dragon Heart' last year -- can't wait to see it perform this year.

The lychniss is already there - it used to be next to my monch asters (which looked great together), but it moved itself through seeding. Maybe I'll go with Rozeanne, since I think that would look ok with the magenta blooms.

RE: Geranium Patricia?

I consider it the most beautiful Geranium of all. It is selfsupporting,stays put, extremely long blooming time and totally covered with flowers. I have had it for ten years, unfortunately all the clumps died this winter.
