Plant details

As the name suggests this attractive hardy geranium is originally from Kashmir. It produces upward-facing, deep violet-purple flowers, veined with lilac-pink, in summer. While it is a little too rampant for confined spaces, it makes a useful ground cover plant and looks particularly good next to yellow or pink roses.
