History and Origin

This sub shrub can reach up to 50 cm in height. Its long green three-lobed leaves with reddish veins are highly indented and velvety. The buds are pinkish; the small flowers white or purple, with five petals of which two have red striations. Geranium is now very common for its aesthetic appearance and ability to repel insects. Furthermore, this ornamental plant is well-known for its low maintenance. Today, there are hundreds of geranium species. They are spread throughout the world, in China, Morocco, Egypt, Madagascar and Réunion Island.
