The dynamite combination of midnight foliage and lilac blooms is hard to beat. Late spring to summer the flowers open freely and are a great drawcard for butterflies. It has a lovely cottage feel and makes for an easy edging, filler, rock garden or potted plant.
The deeply divided leaves are an emerald green with a deep red to purple wash all season long. It grows to form a soft mound of compact foliage. Give them a healthy dose of sun, for the best foliage colour, in too much shade it reverts to green.
Plant Geranium ‘Midnight Rider’ in a sunny spot into moderately fertile to humus rich soil. In warmer climates it will cope with some shade. Water in, then it becomes dry tolerant once established. A light late spring/early summer prune and a bit of fertiliser will extend the flowering season.
