Pelargonium (Geranium)
Pelargonium 'Sensation Picotee'

Pelargonium (Geranum) 'Sensation Picotee'
Type: Half-hardy annual (perennial in zone 9 and above)
Height: 12in/30cm
Season: Early summer to first frosts
Situation: Beds or containers; full sun to half shade, good soil.

This is the most beautiful of seed-raised geraniums - but unfortunately you can't buy it! Outstanding in Fleuroselect trials a few years ago, the breeders have not yet succeeded in encouraging it produce enough seed for it to be made available to gardeners. But they're working on it…

The Sensation Series is known for its prodigous flower production, its very early flowering and the fact that the flowers rarely suffer from grey mould disease, even in the wettest of seasons. The unique colouring of 'Sensation Picotee', its delicate red speckling on the white background shows up poorly on a webpage, will be much in demand when it's finally released. In the meantime six colours are available, most often in a mixture, and they're superb both for containers and for beds and borders.
