Sumptuous magenta flowers that look near black in certain lights, contrast delightfully with the scalloped, velvety, grey foliage that looks great even when there are no flowers. Traditionally sought after for its medicinal properties this South African native is still used in cold and flu medicines today.
Pelargonium sidoides is available as a collection of three plants. They will be dispatched directly from our specialist grower of rarer pelargoniums.
As soon as you receive the plants 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.
