Pelargonium 'Attar of Roses'

Plant details

Confusingly known as geraniums, pelargoniums are in the same plant family as hardy geraniums, but fall into a different genus and bear no resemblance to them at all. They are normally grown as annual bedding plants although they can be overwintered indoors, and are prized for their bright summer flowers and attractive, often fragrant, foliage.

Pelargonium 'Attar of Roses' bears pretty pale pink flowers with an amazing rose scent. It's perfect for growing at the front of a sunny border, and also works well in containers. For best results grow Pelargonium 'Attar of Roses' in well-drained soil in full sun. Feed with a high potash fertiliser during summer and deadhead spent blooms regularly. Bring plants indoors for winter.
