Geranium phaeum var. phaeum 'Samobor' was found by Elizabeth Strangman near Samobor, Croatia. This is a self-seeder but we are so fond of it we allow it to bloom. Cut the flowering stems before seed-set and the leaves then form a dense mound. The great charm of the leaves is in the brown purple blotches that surround the base of each lobe. Tall, airy, 30-inch flower spikes bear purple flowers.

Early summer.  30 in. x 18 in.

Purple flowers

Sun, Part Shade     Zones 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
