Geranium x oxonianum f. thurstonianum Red Sceptre creates mounds of fresh green dissected foliage with light brown marks at the nodes. Typical to the thurstonianum form the petals are narrow, as the name suggests they are a bright magenta. Bred by Robin Moss. A real eye catcher in the border.
Geraniums are herbaceous perennials and for the most part they are super easy to grow and fuss free. They require minimal maintenance, and, in most cases, you will be able to propagate them by division and have many more plants in next to no time.
Not only are geraniums fuss free, but they are also generally pest and disease resistant. They are, once established, drought tolerant and even slugs and snails turn their noses up at them.
With all this in mind, attractive flowers and foliage and long flowering periods what’s not to love about geraniums? They must be one of the most forgiving and enduring yet generous plants around.
