PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Kalwerbossie geranium, Silverleaf geranium|
|Rare and gorgeous!|
|This very dainty species pelargonium/geranium, which originates from Africa, has circular, crinkled, silver-grey-green leaves about an inch across and clusters of small, deep magenta - almost black - flowers on fine, long, wiry stems. Like most pelargoniums, it is frost tender, but it will sit happily on a sunny window sill indoors over winter. Depending on the time of year, plants may be trimmed hard back to keep them from becoming leggy, but will soon produce fresh foliage and blooms.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|This plant will thrive in a sunny, sheltered spot outdoors, although it should also tolerate light shade. It will be happy in a bright window indoors, which is the perfect way to overwinter the plant, during which time it should be kept slightly moist but never waterlogged. Keep tidy and disease-free by remove spent flower stems and dead leaves.|
