Birch's Double

Posted by KateInOhio none (My Page) on

I know this may be a silly question, but is Birch's Double grown from a bulb? Seed? I am having a difficult time locating a place to purchase this plant except for Michigan Bulb which...leads me to believe it's a bulb plant.

Additionally, anyone know any place reputable to purchase?

Thank you!

RE: Birch's Double

It's a hardy geranium, Geranium himalayense 'Birchs Double', therefore a herbaceous perennial, not a bulb. To get a true BD you'd need to purchase a plant from a reputable seller. Many companies which specialise in bulbs here also offer some hardy perennials but I'm afraid I can't help you with US sources.

What flora said :-)

Michigan Bulb sells a lot of plant types other than bulbs but has a terrible reputation in the world of mail order. Avoid at all costs!

Joy Creek Nursery has an excellent reputation and carries this plant, although it is currently sold out for the season. Thompson and Morgan also carries the seed.
