I bet we get more positive feedback for this most floriferous of Geraniums than any other plant we grow! Delightful, deep purple-blue blooms present a cloud of color, 15” tall x 20” across – just like the photo on the right - from Spring thru Fall. WOW! Fast, tough and EASY, it won’t fade away if you forget to water. Reliably perennial, it happily self-sows to fill in bare spots with its ever-present color. When the flowers are spent (after months), cut back to 1”, side dress with compost and it’ll burst right back into bloom. BEST in rich soil and half day sun, but not required. Also heat tolerant. The individual flower petals are heart shaped and very cute in a pressed-flower context. Great in containers and perfect under yellow roses!
