Geranium psilostemon ‘Red Admiral’

Flowers: June-October. Plant in sun or light shade. HxS 60x60cm

There is non-stop flowering on this lovely new geranium, which has a tall but compact upright habit. G. ‘Red Admiral’ has masses of luminous magenta flowers with black veins and does well in most soils. It was spotted and introduced by Cyril Foster. A hybrid of Geranium psilostemon x Geranium sylvaticum ‘Baker’s Pink’ it is a good new introduction and sure to become a collector’s favourite.

Care & Maintenance.

Propagate by division in early spring. Cut back old flowers stems when flowering has finished. Apply a light fertiliser in spring.
