Geranium versicolour are native to much of Europe and Asia. 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 fragrant traditional cottage garden plants. Geranium versicolour has been grown in our gardens from at least the 1600's. It is a superb, compact, semi evergreen, long flowering plant with large, saucer shaped, white occasionally soft pink single flowers, attractivel veined with magenta, held above deeply cut dark green foliage from spring until autumn. Leaves turn an attractive red in autumn. Dead head for best flower production. Excellent in a mixed planting, or in groups. 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 Osmoscote pro 8-9 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year.
