GERANIUM MACULATUM CHOC-LEAF
A stunning variation on the normal, already lovely green-leaved form of this hardy plant. Spreading stems, bearing attractive, chocolate-brown, shiny leaves, support a very long succession of large lilac-mauve flowers. Plants will be similar to the famous cultivar "Elizabeth Anne", but seedlings will also occasionally give darker and lighter leaf colours.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
