Glossy, bright green lobed leaves give rise to strong stems bearing mauve-pink flowers with delicate veining from late spring until early autumn. Flowers are a magnet for pollinating insects.

Prefers a moisture retentive but well-drained soil in sun, partial or full shade. A very adaptable plant for a range of conditions. Will tolerate dry shade when established. Will self-seed.

Height: 12 - 24 inches / 30 - 60cm

Spread: 18 - 30 inches / 45 - 75cm

Lynne’s notes:

I love this Geranium. It is such a versatile plant and one I wholeheartedly recommend. If you require a plant for a shady spot with dry soil then Geranium nodosum is a very good candidate. When established, it happily grows beneath shrubs and trees and may self-seed. When I say established, I mean that after planting in the best soil you can give it, you need to water in well and take care of it until the plant is producing new growth and growing well.

Delivery Options

Our web shop is now open for you to browse and make your selection from. Postage and packing charges depend on the total weight of plants you buy. We only send plants out Monday (not Bank Holidays) to Wednesday. This is to avoid packages being left in the postage system over the weekend. Shipping plants and keeping them healthy along the process is an intricate matter. As we care for the plants we sell we deliver them in a way that ensures they have enough to drink and enough protection between our nursery and your home.

  • Courier Service

  • Click And Collect

    Collection is available from the nursery by appointment only or from one of the events we’ll be attending. During May, June and July our show schedule is very busy so appointments are not always possible and also at other times if we are away attending an event.
