i've been doing some research in my now vast library of plant and have come across two geraniums which they say are spreading but I wanted to get your opinions!

They are
G. Himalyense
G. Magnificum

Obviously i want quick ground cover, but not so quick that it takes over everything around it if i leave it for week. So anyone have any experiece with these? thanks!!

RE: spreading not clumping gernanium?

I have both G. Himalyense and G. Magnificum and would call them clumping rather than spreading. Both G. Macrorrhizum and G. cantabrigiense spread nicely as does G sanguineum Striatum but a bit more slowly. G. pyrenicum spreads quickly but also seeds itself all over the place. It also blooms most of the summer and the seedlings are easy to pull up.
