If you think Geranium 'Rozanne' and G. 'Jolly Bee' are great, you'll love this purple-flowered form (RHS 80A). The name must be another example of male color-blindness. Netherlands nurseryman, Marco van Noort, found this mutation in his plants of Geranium 'Jolly Bee' and subsequently named it Geranium 'Pink Penny' after Minnesotan, Penny Aguirre. Just like its parent, Geranium 'Pink Penny' makes a 15" tall x 18" wide mound of white-patterned green foliage topped from June until frost with 2.5" wide purple flowers, each highlighted with dramatic dark veining. This is a tremendously exciting new introduction for everyone, but especially for those of us in the geranium-impaired southeastern US.
