Geranium bohemicum ‘Orhid Blue’ is a stunning plant, producing clusters of saucer shaped flowers of a rarely seen shade of pure orchid-blue, each with purple-violet veins. Growing 30 to 45cm in height, this new variety soon spreads to form low hummocks of deeply cut soft green, leaves. Suitable for any well drained soil, they are at their best in full sun.
Sow Geranium bohemicum ‘Orhid Blue’ in late winter/late spring or in late summer/autumn. ‘Orchid Blue’ will bloom in summer from an autumn planting, the following year. Fill trays with a good seed-raising mix & sit them in water to moisten thoroughly. Sow the seeds 2.5cm apart, on the surface of the compost and cover seed with vermiculite, sand or sieved compost after sowing. Keep soil slightly moist but not wet. Perennial geraniums germinate usually between 30 to 60 days at temperatures around 5 to 10°C. Constant moisture must be maintained. Do not leave in direct sunlight.
