Geranium macrorrhizum happy in damp rich soil?
I am puzzeling/ planning what to plant between/among 2 large trees, so it`s like a small clearing. (the trees are Linden?/Tilia and Acer pseudoplatanus/Norwegian Maple?).
The soil is pretty good, loamish and tends to be moist, some hours of direct sunlight.
Now what I am wondering is whether Geranium macrorrhizum would thrive under these conditions. Funny when I trained as a landscaper, we planted hundreds of them, often in heavy soil. Now I read up on this plant to find it described as preferring light, well drained poor soil and sunny spots. One catalogue said it could suffer with fungal disease when planted in very wet spots.
What are your experiences?
I want to pick a hardy, spreading perennial which is happy with the annual falling leaves in autumn. Any suggestions welcome, thanks a lot, bye,
