Bigroot geranium (Geranium macrorrhizum 'Bevan's Variety')
jer-AY-nee-um mak-roe-RYE-zum
Genus:  Geranium
Thick rhizomes and stout, sprawling stems guarantee this hardy geranium survivor status. It forms dense mats of foliage in no time, making a perfect large-scale groundcover. The foliage is aromatic, particularly when touched, and transforms to red in fall. The magenta-pink flowers are conspicuously veined. 'Bevan's Variety' grows to slightly more than a foot tall with indefinite spread.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  This groundcovering geranium has attractive foliage and flowers and is very hardy.
Care:  Grow in full sun to partial shade and most any well-drained soil. Unlike other geraniums, there is no need to shear back plants after flowering; simply remove the flowering stems.
Problems:  Nothing serious.
