Positive coriaceous On Oct 20, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

A fantastic performer.

Said to be a sport of Geranium x 'Jolly Bee'/'Rozanne'. Very similar to Geranium x 'Rozanne' in habit, and blooms just as long and as enthusiastically, June to frost. Flowers are more pink (with a lavender tint) and a little smaller than those of 'Rozanne'.

Flowers are sterile and self-cleaning---no deadheading necessary.

Like 'Rozanne', this gets 12" high and up to 3' across.
