Geraniums Scramblers and Crawlers

Plants in this section have long trailing stems, and look most effective growing through shrubs, large perennials or over banks and walls. All will take some shade, particularly in the afternoon; South African geraniums are most sun tolerant and only need protection in the hottest summers. See also G. x riversleaianum 'Mavis Simpson' G. x riversleaianum 'Russell Prichard' and G. 'Rozanne' from Borders and Bedding.

It is very dramatic pelargonium with bright yellow cordate (heart shaped) leaves with a variable mid green central blotch and bright lavender pink flowers with a network of reddish purple veins on the two large upper petals. The three lower petals are narrow and unmarked. It grows up to three to five feet high and wide, but can be kept smaller with judicious pruning. It should be grown in temperatures above 32 degrees F. It is patented and propagation is restricted to licensed propagators.
