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.
