Its common names include African geranium and South African geranium.  It has the prettiest of whispy flowers on long stems and the velvety leaves  forms a basal rosette of cordate leaves and a few short trichomes on long petioles. Its flowers have five dark red to nearly black petals, two of which are sometimes fused. It is often found in flower nearly year-round.  Traditionally sought after for its medicinal properties this South African native is still used in cold and flu medicines today.


Potted up in a beautiful 7" vintage terracotta pot  with a really pretty patina, our English vintage claypots are all over 50 years old, many are 80 years and some are Edwardian and Victorian. We choose our little pots carefully avoiding any large cracks or chips but as they are well-loved by many generations of gardeners and many are handmade, some will have little quirks. We include really detailed growing instructions for geraniums and scented geraniums, along with some ideas of how to use their leaves and decorate your home with these these timelessly classic potted plants.


They're packed up carefully in compostable boxes packed with straw and shipped with an overnight courier service. Our potted plants make lovely gifts and come with a personalised gift card and the option of our Cambridge Imprints wrapping paper and velvet ribbon.
