Info

This form of Geranium cinereum has all the wonderful qualities that make this perennial such a great plant. Silvery sage-green leaves with a compact habit are a stunning backdrop to the profuse magenta veined black flowers. So floriferous it may be used as an annual, continuing its bloom from late May to September. Full sun and well drained soil. Ideal container perennial. Drought tolerant when established. Soil that is overly fertile can lead to rank growth. Occasional summer water. Perfect for parking strips.
