We love the dark black-purple flowers on this wonderful clone of the Balkan native Geranium phaeum. Geranium phaeum 'Raven' was discovered as a seedling of Geranium phaeum 'Lily Lovell' at Canada's Rainforest Gardens. The solid green leaves form a 18" tall x 18" wide clump, topped starting in early April (NC) with flower stalks that hover above the foliage.
