Geranium x oxonianum Something Special, bred by Jos Vandeweyer in Belgium, is a vigorous clump forming geranium and provides excellent ground cover. The foliage is similar to that of Tess and Katharine Adele but the flowers are bright magenta and heavily veined. It really is a very eye catching plant, something special indeed.
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, snails and rabbits 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.
