Geranium pratense 'Dark Reiter'


Availability : Available

Description :

The black geranium

We love it. Geranium pratense 'Dark Reiter' was bred from the legendary 'Midnight Reiter' introduced in the 1990s. It has two superb qualities:

1. violet-blue flowers,

2. black-purple and reddish foliage.

The contrast is marvellous, especially if you combine it with a silver foliage plant like Stachys byzantina 'Big Ears' or with Lavandula 'Hidcote Giant' or even better with Artemisia.

A hardy plant, that takes a long time to grow. It needs a good situation with not too much sun, not too much shade, not too much water and not too dry. In short, the best place in your garden. It will return the favour!
