Geranium psilostemon


  • This vigorous Armenian cranesbill produces a mass of shallow cup-shaped, vivid magenta flowers with black centres and veins from early to late summer. It quickly forms loose hummocks of deeply cut, mid-green leaves, which turn a fabulous shade of red in autumn. An excellent plant for the middle of the border

Product Description

I’ve been trying to build up a stock of this popular Geranium for ages and finally we have enough to put on sale. The bright magenta black-eyed flowers of Geranium psilostemon liven up the garden, filling the gap between the last of the spring bulbs and the first of the roses. Although the flowering season is fairly short, in midsummer, this species has superb deeply divided foliage which makes a good foil for later summer flowers. In autumn the leaves turn fiery red and team well with autumnal fruits or berries. It’s the perfect choice for a cottage garden or herbaceous border and is one of the largest of hardy Geraniums.
