Dark, enigmatic foliage makes a startling foil for the beguiling bright blooms of Geranium 'Black Velvet Mix' in four striking colours. The unique black leaves, produced on upright bushy plants, are edged with just a hint of green. 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.

Flowering Months
Feed and water geranium plants regularly, particularly during hot, dry periods. Regular deadheading of geranium flowers will encourage further blooms to be produced throughout the summer.
Pot up pelargonium plants and grow them on in warm frost-free conditions. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise geraniums to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days before transplanting them into their final positions in containers, beds and borders. Plant geraniums in full sun, in any light, non-acidic, well drained soil. Pinch out the growing tip of each stem to encourage branching and form a bushier plant which will produce more flowers later on.

Nice plants but unfortunately mine have all ended up the same colour! 2012-08-29

Beautiful foliage, but I have ended up with 50 plants all the same colour - pale salmon pink.

Black Velvet plugs 2011-11-06

Plugs arrived in very good condition. Potted on and they are now outside. Most of them have really spectacular dark foliage, some though are greener. We are waiting with interest to see how the flowers contrast.

Beautiful Foliage 2011-07-31

I look for interesting foliage because it will usually outlast the flowers. These make an excellent contrast to the green/cream variegations and the flowers stand out well against their dark background

Small plants arrived in very good condition and were potted on immediately. After three weeks they have trebled in size and the dark leaves are colouring up lovely. I am really looking forward to seeing the contrast of the leaf colour to the flowers
