New from John Tuite this white flowered form has soft pinkish calyces giving a more pastel appearance than other white forms. Evergreen groundcover to 25cm. Sun or shade.

A lovely selection offering something new in the colour range of Geranium macrorrhizum.  It fits halfway between the older white flowered forms with their bright red calyces and the recent albino introductions.  It is making a good start here under the willow windbreak on the nursery in seasonally very dry soil.

A good vigorous plant it will make a good evergreen groundcover in most soils that are not too wet.  Ideal under deciduous trees or shrubs where the soil will dry out in summer but equally good in more shade where it is likely to be taller and may not flower quite so well.

From John Tuite, Norfolk, c. 2012.
