Grow this trailing pelargonium in hanging baskets or a tall container/tub where it can hang and grow to it's hearts content. It is a vigorous grower, looks spectacular when grown with other trailing plants. The flowers are single pink and IMO nothing spectacular (but the foliage makes up for that).
Not hardy and the first frosts will destroy this plant.

not a strong grower in the greenhouse, sensitive to overfertilization, had it for over a year and still no flowers
