New from Alan Bremner this form of Geranium x cantabrigiense has masses of palest icy pink flowers over evergreen foliage to 20cm.
From Alan's breeding which produced the earlier varieties 'St Ola' and 'Westray', this icy pink flowered form was one that he kept back in his own garden until recently. We trialled it for a few years and have been very impressed with it's colour and vigour. The flowers are a little smaller than 'St Ola' but produced in vast numbers to it gives a very good show over quite a long time from April to late June/early July.
Ideal for edging herbaceous borders and providing good, low, evergreen groundcover under roses or similar open growing shrubs. The foliage tints orange and red in late autumn and winter with fresh green foliage coming through in the spring. For most soils with drainage in sun or part shade.
Given to us by Alan to introduce and name, we did so in 2013.
