Pelargonium sidoides (magenta form)
Supplied in a 9cm pot


A beautiful species Pelargonium with powdery grey, glaucous green, rounded leaves. The eye catching flowers are small and delicate, perched on long wiry stems and are a deep dramatic magenta. The flowers are produced for long period, from April, through to September. Originally brought to Europe in 1772 by Kew Garden’s first plant collector, Francis Masson and his Swedish colleague Carl Peter Thunberg. Traditionally grown for its medicinal properties and is still used in cold and flu medicines today.
This charming South African perennial is best in a terracotta pot, in full sun and in a well drained, loam based compost (We use John Innes number 2, with 20% added grit). Not hardy and needs winter protection of an unheated, frost free greenhouse.
