A stunning pelargonium with purple-black blooms, each petal edged with paler purple. An old variety that is one of the best regal pelargoniums available. It is great as a bedding plant or can be grown in a container where it will flower profusely until the first frosts.
'Lord Bute' is available as a collection of three plants in 6.5cm peat pots and dispatched directly from our specialist grower of rarer pelargoniums.
As soon as you receive the collection you will need to pot them up into larger pots or plant them in to their final pots straight away. A great hot tip is to feed your plants every other day with a weak solution of a potash-rich liquid fertiliser, such as Tomorite. You'll be rewarded with masses of flowers throughout the summer on plants about 30-40cm tall.
Please note that as we grow these pelargoniums especially for you, we need to take full payment when you place your order so as to reserve stock for you. The pelargoniums will then be despatched to you at the dates given as they become ready.
