This bronze-leafed perennial may look like the species Geranium pratense, but is actually derived from Geranium maculatum, a woodland perennial and one of the few species in cultivation native to North America. This forms an upright habit topped with beautiful blue flowers. In the fall, the foliage turns bright red here in zone 6. Compared to 'Elizabeth Ann', the blooms are a more vibrant shade of blue. 'Crane Dance' can grow in a range of conditions, from sun to shade.
Hardy geraniums are wonderful filler plants for any landscape, either residential or commercial. They blend nicely with most other perennials and offer continuous color throughout the summer months.
