Geranium 'Midnight Reiter'

Geranium 'Dark Reiter' is an excellent border plant for the sunny garden, forming an 8" mound of very dark purple tinted foliage topped with lilac blue flowers in the summer. It prefers good, well-drained soil in the sun for best color, growth, and blooms. Plant the crowns a little deeply so no roots are showing and then water them lightly just one time while dormant. Once actively growing they are very drought tolerant and perform best in good soil that drains well. In hot locations some shade during the heat of the day can be beneficial as they aren't tolerant of extreme heat.

This selection is a cross between Geranium 'Victor Reiter' and Geranium 'Midnight Reiter' that is a bit smaller than its parents forming compact and slow growing clumps.

Height: 8 - 10" Spacing: 12" apart
Light: Full sun to part sun Soil: Average to rich, well-drained
Bloom Time: Summer Zones: 4 - 8
