(Geranium endressii x Geranium psilostemon)
Bright pink flowers with dark centres, less strident and shorter than Geranium psilostemon. 75cm. Flowers from late May until the autumn often without the need to cut back mid-season. Ordinary soil in sun.
Pretty much the first of the modern Geranium psilostemon hybrids that combine a long flowering season with the otherwise short lived magenta flowers with the black eye. Patricia has light green leaves in a clump to c. 45cm and strong stems holding up masses of the light magenta flowers with the black centre spreading into the veins in the petals to 60-80cm depending on conditions. Generally upright in growth, it can lean a little with competition or shade.
If it does stop flowering in mid summer cut back hard and you should get some more flowers for the autumn.
Ordinary soil, not too wet or too dry, in full sun. Try it with golden yellow foliage plants!
From Alan Bremner 1992.
