An original geranium

Geranium maderense (Geranium maderense) is a robust perennial evergreen plant that is part of the large Geraniaceae family. Of ephemeral nature, the plant is often treated as a biennial in the garden. This geranium stands entirely on its drooping stems which then support the ground, making it seem perched on stilts. It can reach up to 1.5 m height for as much spreading. The bright green leaves, very cut and with a drooping port, are borne by dark red petioles.

From February to October depending on the region, this generous geranium produces a multitude of pink flowers 2 to 4 cm in diameter, veined dark magenta towards the center.

This plant is robust and easy to grow, will be wonderful in the center of the massif or in the background of a rock that will illuminate its long-lasting flowering.
