This grower is sure of this plant identification.

Gorgeous marbled foliage make this plant attractive even when not in flower. Flowers are bright purple-pink with a white centre and large for the size of plant. Spreads readily by underground bulbils so don't grow it where it could swamp your prize specimens, but well worth growing if you have a suitable site for it. 20cm x 45cm or more.

Plant Finder: about Geranium orientalitibeticum

Description

Geranium orientalitibeticum. This species is a dwarf perennial. It has leaves that are basal narrowly lobed and a mixture of dark and light green. The flowers will bloom in the summer with loose cymes of cup-shaped deep purple pink blooms.

Cultivation

They are fully to half hardy. Most species will prefer sun, but some do better in the shade. They will grow in any but waterlogged soil. Outdoors, grow larger species and hybrids in any moderately fertile, well-drained soil. Grow small species and hybrids in humus-rich, sharply drained soil in full sun. Under glass, grow half hardy species in loam-based potting compost with added sharp sand, in bright filtered light. During the growing season, water freely and apply a balanced liquid fertilizer monthly. Water sparingly in winter.
