Robin Moss' selected seedling from 'Tidmarsh'. Erect clumps with rich pink-purple flowers in summer. Good soil in sun or part shade. 60cm.
An unusual hybrid along the lines of Geranium sylvaticum, this plant is proving easier to grow than it's parent. Geranium 'Tidmarsh' (no, sorry but we don't have it - we do want it though!) is Bill Baker's hybrid, supposedly between Geranium palustre and Geranium sylvaticum, unfortunately it seems to be of relatively poor constitution.
'Mrs Jean Moss', however, is as easy to grow as any of the Geranium sylvaticum forms and makes a similar clump of light green leaves with broad divisions and sends up strong flower stems in late spring topped with rich purplish-pink flowers with a hint of blue. Repeat flowering is possible if cut back as long as the soil is good and doesn't dry out in summer.
Named by Robin Moss, named for his wife. Name first published, by The Plantsman's Preference, in 2008.
