Geranium maculatum Espresso
This woodland native will charm you not only with its propensity to bloom, but with its deep, dark colored foliage that adds spice to the landscape throughout the growing season. 'Espresso' has a dense spreading form that works well in the front of any planting and is very tolerant of partial or even full shade conditions. Its foliage is deeply cut and a dark red-brown color that serves as a colorful backdrop for loads of small pink flowers that bloom from mid-May through late June. Native bees and butterflies use 'Espresso' as a nectar source while small garden critters find its dense, spreading form provides outstanding cover. Plant it in groups and enjoy the color show.
