Comments: This geranium grows tall and branched. The young stems are quite tender, but become woody as a plant matures. Foliage is a dull green with conspicuous veins and glandular hairs on the surface of the foliage. Flowers can be light to very dark pink. Makes an excellent container plant. Blooms over an extended period.
