Pelargonium 'Ashby'

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. Most can be categorised into groups, such as scented-leaf pelargoniums and decorative pelargoniums.

Decorative pelargoniums have various flower forms in a wide range of colours. They make excellent pot plants and are well suited to growing on sunny patios and in conservatories.

Pelargonium 'Ashby' produces dark pink blooms with a crimson centre. It's perfect for growing at the front of a sunny border, and also works well in containers. For best results grow Pelargonium 'Ashby' 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.
