The Q&A Archives: Pink Spice Cranesbill

Question: Your website indicates that your patented pink spice cranesbill geranium foliage is of no value during winter season, but other internet listing for the plant say it is evergreen. Is this plant evergreen in Zone 9 where I live? I would very much like to use this plant for the unique foliage color, but so far it has not been available in my area. Will it be available later this year in California?

Answer: Pink Spice Cranesbill is from New Zealand and will be perfectly happy to grow in your southern California garden all year around. Unless there is a freeze, the foliage will remain through the winter months. You'll probably want to renew it in spring, however, by cutting the plant back so fresh new foliage will emerge. Not all garden centers will have Pink Spice in stock this spring. Since retailers order independently, I can only suggest you phone your local nurseries periodically to check on availability. Best wishes with your garden!
