Light green leaves with prominent chocolate brown markings makes a good mound covered with narrow petalled bright pink flowers in summer. 30cm. Average soil in sun or part shade.
Of all the forms of Geranium x oxonianum with obvious brown markings on the leaves this less common form has some of the most distinct if not most expansive markings. The chocolate brown spots and patches are relatively small and well defined but spread over much of the leaf unlike others which just have them near the main divisions.
From the f. thurstonianum clan this form has typical narrow petalled flowers that are often semi-double or have the odd petalloid stamen. A bright pink with darker veins and nearly white in the centre. Overall a distinctive plant, and compact growing too.
