One of the hardy Geranium discoveries of the century! 'Purple Haze' is a stunning plant, producing amazing foliage with a unique bronze-purple hue, a shade rarely seen in hardy Geranium foliage. The leaves are deepest in shade during spring, gradually changing to an attractive deep green with strong purple edging. Even more exciting is the striking contrast of the blooms, perfectly themed in shades of gorgeous violet-mauve. Height: 60-75cm (24-30in).
Sowing Time: February to June or September to October. Sow seed in pots or trays of moist seed compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. After sowing, seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at 15-20C (60-68F). Germination can be slow, if there is no emergence within 8 weeks, then place container and bag into a refrigerator (not freezer) for 3 weeks, before returning to 15-20C.
The method recommended to germinate this particular variety of seed is a simulation of how the seeds germinate in natural conditions. By following these instructions, you should achieve maximum success.
Examine container regularly and carefully transplant individual seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. When well grown, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out 60cm (24in) apart in a light, well-drained soil in full sun.
