Description

Height x Spread: 100cm x 45cm

A profusion of saucer-shaped vivid magenta flowers with striking black eyes and veins are held on upright stems above clumps of deeply cut mid-green leaves. This Geranium has a striking colour combination singing out against lime greens or complimented by pale blues.

Its fiery-red autumnal foliage colour is an added bonus.  It will not produce a second flush, but its foliage remains upright after flowering. It prefers a full sun or partially shaded site, but can tolerate more shade.  It will grow in any reasonably rich soil that is not waterlogged.
