Pelargonium, Zonal Geranium, Zonal Pelargonium

 Customer Rating
  • Rarely available

Dark, enigmatic foliage makes a startling foil for the beguiling bright blooms of Geranium 'Black Velvet Mix' in four striking colours.

This boldly coloured zonal geranium makes a striking addition to pots, beds and borders for long lasting summer colour. Height: 40cm (14"). Spread: 30cm (12").


Although technically perennial, Pelargoniums are only half hardy and therefore normally treated as annuals in the UK. However, with care, they may be overwintered in a frost free greenhouse.
