I've had one for years growing in a big tub with large succulents such as Euphorbia ammak. I almost lost it a couple of times from lack of water..it now seems to have a root system that handles the occasional drought. Slow growing-choice rock garden type plant that does make a bonsai like trunk and thick low branches. Watch that weed grasses dont smother it,keep away from people or pet traffic,bait for slugs and snails.
Many,many are sold,few are seen doing well..and when they do,they are standout plants.

Definitely a hit for anyone who likes unusual, variegated foliage. I love the maple-leaf shape as well! On the downside, it's a pretty slow grower. Also, I find the flowers to be rather puny and insignificant compared to the foliage.

I fell in love with the colors and texture of this wonderful plant.
I keep it outside spring, summer and into fall. I move it into an unheated greenhouse in winter. I have had this plant for about 5 years ... it has survived drought conditions and come back flourishing.

This colorful geranium was developed for our friends in Canada. It is called "Vancouver Centennial", the leaf shape is resembling the Canadian Mapleleaf. Is a beautiful plant that leaf color intensifies in exposure to bright sunlight. Just another geranium with great foliage color to acsent the orange red blooms.

The colorful foliage on this cultivar far outshines the smallish red flowers. I left it in a pot on an exposed balcony over winter and it not only thrived but continued to bloom year round!
