Plant details

This stunning hardy geranium really lives up to its name, producing a glorious show of rich violet-blue flowers in mid-summer. The display is sadly only for a few weeks but its brilliance makes up for its short duration. Try combining it with blue grasses or hostas, or as a contrast to pink or yellow roses. The Royal Horticultural Society have given their prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
