Geranium incanum

Going up to the paddock the other day to take some cuttings at work, this beacon of colour radiated out from underneath the silver birch at me. I didn't have my camera but Lisa one of my co workers did and she took the photo's for me, Thank you Lisa.
Geranium incanum a South African from the Cape - Hout Bay to Port Alfred which explains why it does so well in Australia. The form usually grown is Geranium incanum var. Multifidum  a strong grower, a large flush of flowers in Spring with a smattering of flowers through out summer into Autumn, beautiful filigree leaves that are divided and then divided again, with red tints in Autumn. Easy from cuttings taken in Spring using a hormone powder or liquid and seed.
