Flowers: May-June & Sept. Plant in part or full shade. HxS 60x45cm
Discovered as a seedling on the nursery, this form has dark red stems and very dark maroon flowers. Most G. phaeum cultivars are green stemmed so we thought this looked a bit different, particularly when the stems contrast so well with the almost black flowers. Not as tall as some cultivars, but flowers well and will rebloom if cut back. Best in shady conditions and dry shade tolerant once established. The flower shows G. phaeum ‘Lady in Mourning’, which is identical. Grown peat free and organically. Hardiness H7. Pot size 1.5L
Care & Maintenance.
Cut back after the first flush of flowers. Propagate by division in spring. (If any geranium enthusiasts have or grow a similar form please get in touch. We have seen a similar red-stemmed form on the Dorset Perennials site but our flower appears to be much darker)SKU: GERPPP
