Description

Family Geraniaceae
Originating from Madeira

Evergreen perennial with a stout, trunk-like stem bearing large, deeply dissected, palmate, bright green leaves on long stalks. The leaves can grow up to 60cm in length. The lower leaves shouldn’t be removed as they die – they droop down and act like props, supporting the fast-growing main stem and are very much a part of the plant’s character.
In late winter to early summer it produces an immense panicle of pink flowers with magenta centres on long stems, coated in purple hairs. The absolute king of geraniums.
This is a short-lived perennial and may die after flowering. Often self-seeds.
Grow in moist but well-drained soil in sun/part shade. May survive average UK winter in sheltered gardens but is not fully hardy. In cold areas grow in a pot and over -winter under glass.
