Large deeply cut leaves turn dazzling red in autumn, whilst large magenta saucers, vividly veined and centred in black, on widely-spreading stems, impress all who see it in its summer glory. One of the toughest and most spectacular of all hardy geraniums - and inevitably the most frugal with its individually-picked seeds!
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. This variety can be very slow to germinate but please be patient.
