Geranium ‘Orkney Cherry’

Dwarf Cranesbill

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.229.510

An outstanding dwarf Cranesbill selection, this is ideal for edging, rock gardens and walls or growing in mixed containers. It forms a low trailing mound of deeply cut bronze-green leaves, bearing a long display of small star-shaped deep pink flowers that age to streaky soft pink, giving the impression of two colours on the plant. Said to be one of the best varieties for summer-long blooming. Evergreen in mild winter regions. Quite possibly hardy to Zone 4 or colder. Selected in Scotland by Geranium breeder Alan Bremner. USPP#18263: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
