Elegance Red Velvet Geranium features bold clusters of lightly-scented hot pink flowers with white eyes and a dark red blotch at the ends of the stems from late spring to early fall. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its serrated round palmate leaves remain green in colour throughout the year.
Martha Washington Geraniums can be used in mass plantings, borders, containers and hanging baskets.
Elegance Red Velvet Geranium will grow to be about 14-18 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 14-18 inches. When grown in masses or used as a bedding plant, individual plants should be spaced approximately 15 inches apart.
Elegance Red Velvet Geranium is a fine choice for the garden, but it is also a good selection for planting in outdoor containers and hanging baskets. It is often used as a 'filler' in the 'spiller-thriller-filler' container combination, providing a mass of flowers against which the larger thriller plants stand out.
