Midnight Reiter Needs Help

i_dig_it(z5a - Illinois)July 26, 2007

I got this about a month ago and planted it in full morning sun among some hostas. It soon started shriveling up and I thought it was a goner, so I dug it up and potted it after I saw a couple of teenie tiny leaves starting to regrow.

It's still not doing so good.

What conditions does this one like? Or is it a weak variety?

Janet, 'Midnight Reiter' is of the Geranium Pratense family (meadow geranium), and reputed to be slow growing.
So I wouldn't worry too much if I were you, just give it time to recover!
As it is only "heeling", I'd leave it in a pot in half shade for a while, keep it moist but not too much, and plant it in a sunny position next fall...
