Pelargonium Zonale

Customer Favourite Choice,
, Customer Review

'Samelia is a very deep blood red colour. If you like a lighter, more orangey red then choose PAC Octavia Hill. Geranium 'Samelia' has large double, showy flowerheads and has been a reliable favourite for UK gardeners for some time. Its long flowering period makes this double flowering variety the perfect pelargonium for all of your summer displays and will keep flowering right on into autumn! Height: 35cm (15"). Spread: 25cm (10").

  • Jan recommends planting geranium 'Samelia' in the centre of your patio containers, and surround them with lots of trailing plants like lobelia, verbena, bidens and bacopa.

Geranium 'Mrs Pollock'

Pelargonium Zonale

Customer Favourite Choice
Wonderful foliage of red, gold and green
Brick red flowers
Great in patio containers

Mrs Pollock is one of the best tri-colours there is - leaves of red, green and yellow. It was introduced in 1858 and has more than stood the test of time - hard to beat as a display plant. Fancy Leaf Geraniums have a wide range of variation in their foliage and flower colours. They make a fabulous addition to a mixed container display and are so eye catching. As easy to grow as all your geraniums - we always seem to think that something that looks different must be more difficult - but not so! Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 30cm (12").
