Misty Samobor
(Dusky Cranesbill)

A clump-forming perennial. Plants make neat mounds to 45cm, with pale green foliage with darker blotches making fir an attractive appearance and a good spreading habit, flowers hang over on stems to about 65cm in spring.
Misty Samobor has intricate light purple flowers with a blend of colours from almost white through to a light pink colour, this makes for an impressive flower and worth paying attention to when they bloom, the flowering height to around 65cm. Found in the gardens at Beth Chatto as a chance seedling.

The Geraniums in the phaeum species are particularly useful in the garden for a number of reasons, they flower early in the year from April through to may and will then repeat flower later in the summer. G. phaeum is also perfectly happy from full shade through into full sun, making a great addition for any situation. It is also not fussy when it comes to soil type, being really adaptable in a soil as long as it has good drainage, this includes clay, loam, sandy and chalky soils. The flowering heights vary through the varieties but they tend to be around 70cm up to 1m.
