This vigorous selection of the sterile hybrid Geranium x magnificum (ibericum x platypetalum) has been a real trooper in our garden where we kill more geraniums than Saddam Hussain did dissidents. The attractive 20" wide clump of cutleaf green foliage is topped in May with stunning 2" blue-violet flowers which are heavily veined in red...like my eyes about this time of night. The flowers are held nicely above the foliage in large outfacing masses. For someone who had given up on many of the showier geraniums, this is a winner.
