Lovely two-tone leaves 🙂
There are such pretty Geraniums available now- leaves as interesting as their flowers 😉
I think it would be well worth it to make a collection of them just for their leaf colours and shapes.
Yes, it is definitely an interesting group of plants to collect. More and more of the ‘fancy leaf’ geraniums have come available in our nurseries in recent years.
I have two – your post made me think I should be adding!
Why not? They can be overwintered year to year, propogate easily, are very drought tolerant, keep insects away, bloom their little hearts out for months, remain neat and tidy, and have such gorgeous foliage. If I were limited to only a very few genus in the garden, these would absolutely make the cut 😉
