Discovered in the damp woods in the wilds of Croatia, this marvelous geranium selection first caught my eye in the garden of friend Dan Hinkley. Each 2' wide clump is adorned with stunning foliage. Each of the 4" wide, textured green leaves is highlighted by a large purple-black circle in the center...a truly fascinating feature. In May-June, the clumps are topped with numerous 2' spikes of strongly-reflexed, dark lavender flowers. This tough and surprisingly easy-to-grow selection, even in hot, humid NC, is truly a must-have geranium!
