Geranium phaeum ‘Samobor’

Mourning Widow Cranesbill

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.230.430

This exceptionally good selection of the Mourning Widow is valued for its display of medium-sized leaves, each boldly splashed with purple-black against a green background. The nodding maroon-purple flowers are a near-match, appearing in late spring. A sure winner in shade or sun, in the garden or in containers. Prefers a rich, moist soil. Excellent choice for a woodland garden. Clumps are easily divided in spring or early fall.
