Plant details

Little Gem' is one of the 100s of hardy geraniums raised by Orkney farmer Alan Bremner. It makes a low-growing mound of semi-evergreen grey-green foliage that is rarely without flower between May and the first frosts of autumn. The freely produced blooms are an attractive shade of magenta. Perfect for the front of the border or in containers, it enjoys a sunny position in well-drained soil.
