Pelargonium Capitatum

Plant details

Pelargonium capitatum is a shrubby, low-growing plant with delicate pink flowers. Nip back the growing tips in the spring and early summer to create extra, bushy growth and even more flower buds, and feed over summer to give the plant a boost. Good companion plants include trailing variegated ivy, to dangle over the edge of the pot, and contrasting bright red pelargoniums to give a strong contrast or a plant with small grey leaves to blend in. Stand outside over summer, but keep on a windowsill over winter, when it only needs the occasional drink.
