Black Beauty

Black Beauty

We bought this geranium (several years ago) for its dark foliage. It hasn’t been a huge success… until this year. Now, it has really come into its own.

The flowers are nice enough, but I love the way that the foliage and seedheads are reddish-black. It’s a bit of a show-off, but that’s a good thing in a garden (in moderation).
