  • Catalogue Code 5130-1312
  • Pack Contents: 1x Bare Root Perennial

Flowering through the summer months in those difficult hot, dry areas under trees this fluorescent purple-pink geranium with white centre thrives. Giving interest into autumn where the foliage turns vivid red.

This bare-root variety arrives to you as a bare-root plant fully labelled plant with its roots surrounded by a polythene bag to give the roots a good, humid environment.

Bare-root plants are perfect for you to plant in the ground or in containers anytime from autumn to spring.  The head of leaves and stems will burst into leaf and flower from next spring, and a good root network which will establish in the ground over winter.

Remove the polythene bag and water the root area of your bare-root plant on arrival. Try to plant straight away but if this is not possible your plant will survive up to two or three days with its roots buried in some loose moist soil. Keep out of direct-sun until permanently planted.

Once planted in rich, moist soil provide a thick layer of compost on the surface around the plant will keep the soil area warm and the roots stimulated for over winter.
