The Canary Island geranium can be biennial or a short lived perennial in the UK. It has very handsome, shiny-green, sculptural leaves and pink to light magenta flowers, held above the leaves on hairy flower stems. These stems are covered with magenta glandular hairs. Although short lived, it is well worth growing and self-seeds in a manageable way, so you always have it. Evergreen in our milder winters and becoming established in Cornwall and Ireland. Grown organically in peat free compost. 1 litre pot.
Care & Maintenance.
Little attention is required. The plant sets seed readily which germinates easily, or just let it seed about. Foliage may be blackened in harsh winters and can be removed in early spring when the boss of new growth emerges.SKU: GERREU
