Description

Geranium Lilac Ice® was discovered by keen plantsman Michael Steggles who worked at the Blooms Nursery at Bressingham, Norfolk. It is a sport of the multi-award-winning Geranium Rozanne® from Donald and Rozanne Waterer, which offers a different color option with pale, 2.5″ (6cm) lilac flowers with darker veins. More compact than its famous parent with the same easy-growing qualities and versatility with an almost-as-long blooming period June to October. Toothed, green foliage with lighter accents forms neat mounds. Plants are compact and self-branching. Perfect in the sunny perennial border, patio pots and hanging baskets.  Quite heat tolerant.
