Geranium ‘Orkney Cherry’

Geranium x antipodeum

Geranium x antipodeum ‘Orkney Cherry’ is a hardy Geranium selected for its floriferousness and long bloom period, it begins flowering in early summer until the first severe cold snap!

Hardy geraniums are a mainstay in the garden. Heavy blooming and low maintenance make this a great Geranium to add to your line up. ‘Orkney Cherry’ is excellent in borders, rockeries, window boxes, baskets, and containers. Good impulse sales, great garden performance.
