Product information "Geranium x magnificum"

Purple cranesbill makes gardener’s hearts happy with its large, intense blue, bowl-shaped flowers that appear from May to July.
Geranium x magnificum has strong growth and forms roundish clumps of palmate-lobed leaves that can have a diameter of up to 70 cm. The occasional tendency to fall apart can be remedied with a prop. Geranium x magnificum is more stable when planted in full sun.
