Discovered by American Plantswoman Leslie Grayson in Pennsylvania. Geranium Elizabeth Ann has chocolate colored foliage. It flowers late spring/ early summer. The flowers are pretty very soft lavender. Loves to grow in moist but sunny locations. Propagation by division and tissue culture. License required for propagation.
