'Biokovo' Cambridge Geranium is a charming semi-evergreen groundcover which thrives in well drained sunny locations. The white blooms are tinged with pink at the base of the petals and are enhanced by red calyces. The flowers are produced in June and July, and hover gracefully over the low green foliage. The fall and winter color is also attractive, turning shades of bronze and red. Geranium × cantabrigiense is a sterile hybrid geranium developed by Dr. Helen Kiefer of the Cambridge University Botanic Garden in Cambridge, England. It is a cross between G. macrorrhizum and G. dalmaticum. Geranium 'Biokovo' was a natural hybrid found in the Biokovo Mountains of Croatia, so its cold tolerance is excellent.
