Geranium 'Orion'

Photo of Geranium 'Orion'

£7.99

'Orion' fully deserves its stellar title, for it outshines other blue geraniums in depth of colour, size of bloom and length of flowering season. Each of the five, vibrant, mauve-blue petals is boldly veined in iridescent maroon-pink. Where the petals meet, a simple small green eye frames a ring of light-mauve, arching stamens.
