This hardy geranium cultivar is a compact, clump-forming, perennial which forms a spreading mound of foliage that typically grows to 15" tall and to 24" wide. Features 1" diameter, reddish-purple, 5-petaled flowers in spring to early summer for a period of 6-7 weeks, sometimes with an intermittent but sparse rebloom occurring throughout the summer and early fall. Deeply cut leaves have 5-7 lobed divisions. Foliage turns a somewhat attractive red in autum.
