Geranium are found in many habitats across the globe. The common name comes from the fruit that is supposed to look like the head and bill of a Crane. Herbaceous Geraniums are undoubtedly one of the most widely cultivated of all garden plants and are very traditional cottage garden plants. Geranium Red Admiral is a new hybrid of Geranium psilostemon x Geranium sylvaticum Bakers Pink. It is sure to become a collectors favourite. A superb spreading plant with abundant, large, saucer shaped, luminous magenta flowers with black veins in terminal cymes, held above deeply cut deep green foliage from spring until autumn. Dead head for best flower production. Foliage turns a reddy colour in autumn. Excellent in mixed planting, or in groups and can easily be grown in a pot or other container. Use a good quality compost and ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmocote pro 8-9 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year.
