Geranium 'orientalitibeticum'


By Simbad

Geranium 'orientalitibeticum' (Geranium orientalitibeticum)

Lovely geranium, great coloured foliage too, bit rampant though, even spread out the border into the grass this year, spreads by tiny tubers.

Kathy, this looks exactly the same as my 'speciosum tuberosum' which I put on my pics today....what do you think? Same plant different name...I shall do a bit of research......:))

Just had a look at yours Karensusan it does look exactly the same, does spread by tiny tubers pretty vigorous, remember seeing AndrewR has this too,sent to me by a friend as orientalibeticum, let me know what you find out :-)

Kathy, good news, your is correctly named...almost (in the book it is 'Orientali-Tibeticum') but tuberosum has mauve flowers with dark veins!! Just another annoying instance where my local, very friendly and interesting nursery has mislabelled one of their plants!! Sitll, it makes for a learning opportunity!! I'm off to rename mine now! K ;)

I have just been given this little geranium and was pleased to see your comments. I now know where to put it and where not to! Looking forward to seeing it spread itself though.

Does anyone know if it has any specific likes or dislikes?

It seems to grow pretty much everywhere here Catlin but does seem to flower the best in a sunnier spot :-)
