Description

The Tree Pelargonium often grows to 2 m high in ideal conditions; this most attractive Pelargonium is an excellent choice to fill a large gap in the living fence. Flowers are large, and a vibrant pink; all 5 petals are streaked with a few dark purple veins – the long flowering season makes this shrub a stunning and worthwhile addition to all Cape gardens. Leaves are a soft green, round to kidney-shaped.
