Geranium 'Orkney Cherry' Plug Plants (3 Pack)
Geranium 'Orkney Cherry' hails from the Orkney Islands in the North of Scotland and is a unique and fully hardy geranium that will captivate you as soon as you see it!
This eye-catching plant is, as you would expect, fully hardy (to -18°C) easy to grow and robust - a testament to its provenance, and delights all who see it with stunning, contrasting colours - the flowers are bright, bubblegum pink, and the leaves a dark green with bronze tones. The delicate blooms fade as they age to a soft pink, meaning that there will also be a multitude of colours on the plant over the season.
Easy to grow, Orkney Cherry thrives in shade and will flower for months. From early summer to late autumn, this low-growing perennial forms a spreading carpet of bronze-flushed foliage which becomes smothered in masses of small magenta-pink flowers. The leaves are semi evergreen, meaning that in a milder winter, they will stay on the plant, bringing much needed colour and form to your garden.
'Orkney Cherry' is a cranesbill that can be used in many situations around the garden, whether in hanging baskets, pots on terraces and balconies, in rock gardens, perennial and cottage garden borders or for landscaping. With a compact, creeping growth habit, it's ideal to give a cascading effect at the front of the border, in containers and for softening hard edges.
Plus, it's attractive for pollinating insects, so don’t be surprised when more butterflies and bees show an interest in your garden!
