Another first, a hardy Geranium with flowers in three colors appearing over an unusually long season. Opening a creamy pink, the flowers soon develop a broad blue zone around a pink ring shading off to a white center, all prettily whiskered with dark veins. The backs of the flowers are boldly veined in deep pink. It's a truly delightful combination on plants with a mounding, spreading habit. Geraniums are ideal as a ground cover and billowing out of containers. 'Sweet Heidy' is another splendid introduction from leading Dutch breeder Marco van Noort. PP 19,533
This is the true Geranium, not to be confused with the annual Pelargonium one sees everywhere in summer. Perennial Geraniums are lovely plants that grow in full sun or partial shade (required in the South and the warmer areas of the West) and need soil with good drainage.
