Geranium 'Sweet Heidy'

Big bold and a bit sprawling. I love this hardy geranium. Right now it is spilling out of the pots and down the plant tables 3' or more. It makes and excellent mounding flowering ground cover for sun or light shade. What more could you ask for. ( We don't bring them to the Farmers Market because of the vine/stem length but they are for sale here at the nursery throughout the late summer and fall season.)
