Way cool! This Dale Hendricks selection of our native deciduous Geranium maculatum boasts lobed chocolate brown foliage as compared to the typical green. The tight 15" wide clump is topped in early spring with stalks of light lavender flowers. While I like the flowers, the beauty here is the wonderful brown foliage. We recommend planting this with Heuchera 'Cappuccino' for a real kick in the morning.
