Our garden is a romping place for hardy geraniums, only occasionally featuring a tender geranium of the Pelargonium genus. This year I'm growing one I picked up at the HPS/MAG spring plant sale for its striking leaves. It's growing in a hypertufa orb on our patio, and recently started blooming. A nice bold stroke. I have no illusions of being able to overwinter it (houseplants are not my forte), so I plan to enjoy it throughout this summer.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
