(Geranium traversii x Geranium sessiliflorum nov. 'Nigricans') x Geranium rubifolium. Low mounding plant with dark gray-green leaves with a brown tinge; flowers light magenta, slightly notched, becoming pale in the center, with separated petals.
This charming geranium for light shade comes originally from the UK where it was first introduced in 1989. It has pale green and very light creamy-yellow veined and splashed leaves and mid lavender flowers with a white eye. It forms a low mound about 12 x 18" when mature. It is very useful under shrubs and trees in the garden where it produced little splashes of artificial sunshine. It is cold hardy from USDA Zone 4-5 up to Zone 9.
