In 2012 a breeding programme was started to combine the vigour of cutting raised climbing Pelargonium varieties with the very dark foliage of fully zoned seed raised varieties.
5 years of breeding has resulted in Pelargonium Tall, Dark and Handsome Series, a vegetative series with almost black leaves, creating a wonderful backdrop to the flowers for a vivid colour display.
The flowers are pollenless to ensure a longer flowering period and this very vigorous variety will climb to 6ft with support. Available in three stunning colours: ‘Speckled Coral’, ‘Orange’ and ‘Pink'. Full sun in well-drained soil.
Tender perennial. (H2)
It is being launched at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017 and entered into the RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year competition.
