'Pulchrum' means beautiful in botanical terms, and this is amply demonstrated by this gem from the South African mountains which bears dense sprays of largish purple-veined mauve flowers with leathery, silver-grey leaves. Unlike many geraniums, this plant positively relishes damp conditions.
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.
