Geranium Psilostemon

 

Geranium Psilostemon, Armenian cranesbill. The bright magenta black-eyed flowers liven up the garden. Although the flowering season is fairly short, in mid-summer, this species has superb deeply divided foliage which makes a good background for later summer flowers. In autumn they turn fiery red and team well with autumnal fruits or berries. A good plant for a cottage garden or herbaceous border.

 

 

Plant in light well drained soil. Full sun / Partial shade, Hardy
