My question is about leaves that are still green and cover whole plant, should I cut them to the ground and put mulch on top or should I leave them uncut and cover with mulch after frost. Also a lot of sites say that plants should be covered with mulch only after couple of freezes but not before.

Answer: 
Hello, Lara. Winter preparation is really up to you! There's two options: The plant can be trimmed back now and then surrounded by a mulch cover, but obviously, the foliage color will not be enjoyed anymore this year. Option 2: The mulch can also be placed around the plant now and you can enjoy the beautiful leaves until a freeze kills them. At that time, the dead/dying foliage can be removed or it can Read More

Answer: 
Hello, thank you for your question. Plant tags vary between manufacturers and the data can be very confusing to consumers. The 'Max Frei' geranium typically grows between 4-9" tall with a width of 12-24" at maturity.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful Cranesbill!!! I was hesitant to order these online because I needed ten of them. They were delivered very quickly by Home Depot (through UPS or Fed Ex, I can't remember) and were in excellent condition. They were in larger 1 gallon pots and each plant was just over the edge of the pot. I planted them right away and every single one of them are thriving. I will absolutely order hard to find plants from Home Depot again. I could not find any of these around me and was thrilled when they came and looked so healthy!! June 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Also called Big Root Geranium This plant smells like geraniums and is very hardy. It grows in low mounds and has a very pretty pink flower in the spring all over the top of plant. It spreads quickly and grows anywhere. In deep shade it just may not flower. It is deer resistant and makes a nice border or filler. Just keep breaking it apart and replant and you will have an abundance of this pleasant smelling beautiful perrenial. In full sun it gets fall color to the plant and lights up a whole border. I couldn't get to planting some in a barron area and yet I left them on the ground in several spots and they all rooted. They have long narrow roots and plant shallow. I highly recommended this plant for bare areas, shady spots, borders or rock gardens. A medium soft leaf like cora belles but very hardy and can take cold climates like Minnesota. This plant doesn't die. It just goes dormant in the winter and keeps growing. Looks darker in the winter but is still there. June 8, 2014
