Description / Geranium 'Blushing Turtle'

Geranium 'Blushing Turtle' is a showy perennial offering midsummer into fall interest, with heaviest bloom in midsummer and continued rebloom into fall. With a long and continuous bloom habit, the plant sets large, five-petaled, orchid-pink flowers with reddish purple veins. Butterflies adore them.

A geranium, commonly called cranesbill, Geranium 'Blushing Turtle' is a freely branching herbaceous plant with an upright and rounded habit of deeply lobed foliage and vigorous, low, slow spreading growth. To control spread, side stems can be removed at any time. When massed, it makes a great groundcover in beds and borders, especially around leggy roses. It is also ideal to trail over a retaining wall or spill over the edges of a patio pot.

Easy to grow and low maintenance, Geranium 'Blushing Turtle' prefers full sun to part shade and moist, organic, well-drained soil. The plant is deer, rabbit, and mildew resistant, and once established, has some drought tolerance.

'Blushing Turtle' is the result of a cross-pollination between an unnamed seedling selection of Geranium sanguineum (female parent) with either Geranium x oxonianum 'Julie Brennan' or an unnamed selection of Geranium asphodeloides (male parent). This cross-pollination took place in the summer of 1999 at Nannose Bay, British Columbia, Canada. U.S. Plant patent PP22,376 was issued on December 20, 2011.
