Full name: Geranium x oxonianum ‘Orkney Cherry’.

Bright pink flowers bloom from June to September over purple-bronze trailing foliage. It makes a stunning addition to the front of the border.

An outstanding dwarf Cranesbill selection, this is ideal for edging, rock gardens and walls or growing in mixed containers. It forms a low trailing mound of deeply cut bronze-green leaves, bearing a long display of small star-shaped deep pink flowers that age to streaky soft pink, giving the impression of two colours on the plant. Said to be one of the best varieties for summer-long blooming. Evergreen in mild winter regions. Quite possibly hardy to Zone 4 or colder. Selected in Scotland by Geranium breeder Alan Bremner.


Planted 4 specimens in May 2016.
