Planted this last summer. Blooms periodically all summer in East Hampton, NY. Not a lot of blooms, but mine is in partial shade. Needs cutting back when it gets leggy. Will report back after this spring on its development.

Just planted this summer, so haven't been thru winter yet....

BUT - this is the prettiest little thing. Leaves are quite smaller than my other geraniums - each is only an inch across. They are a deep bronze, making flowers pop.

Three plants have only been in the ground a couple of weeks and it looks as if each is 1 1/2 times as wide as when planted.

Love this plant.
