    A stunning pelargonium with purple-black blooms, each petal edged with paler purple. An old variety that is one of the best regal pelargoniums available. It is great as a bedding plant or can be grown in a container where it will flower profusely until the first frosts.

  • Garden care: Pot up your pelargoniums, but only place them outside in the garden after the risk of frost has passed. Remove the spent flowers as they fade, and keep them well fed using a dilute solution of a high-potash liquid fertiliser (Tomorite is ideal) at regular intervals. If you want to keep them over the winter, move them to a frost free environment and avoid overwatering during the colder months.
