Very similar to Geranium 'Mavis Simpson', this form has the same pale pink flowers but this time with veins on the back of the petals! A clump former with spreading flower stems that trail up to 45cm (18") out in summer. 15cm tall. For drained soil in full sun.
An ideal plant for the edge of a raised bed or for edging a border where it's low mat of flowering stems will provide a good display from the end of May until September. This is a naturally long flowering hybrid and there is no need to cut it back during the flowering season unless it gives up flowering during a very hot spell. Geranium 'Jean Armour' can also make a good container plant given a well drained compost but it would be a good idea to take it into a sheltered area, or perhaps even a cold glasshouse for the winter.
For a drained soil in full sun. This hybrid can suffer in very cold winters or in exposed positions so some shelter from the worst winter weather is adviseable.
