  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast growing
  • Flowering period: April to September
  • Flower colour: red
  • Other features: attractive foliage
  • Hardiness: tender

    This gorgeous pelargonium has glowing, ember-red flowers that are held in open heads above mounds of attractive foliage. Each red flower is subtly ghosted with deep red markings that emphasizes the radiant effect. It looks fabulous in a pot on the patio or conservatory.

    'Ardens' is available as a single plant that has been grown in a 9cm pot. They are removed from their pot before being sent out. They will be dispatched directly from our specialist grower of rarer pelargoniums.

    As soon as you receive the plant you will need to pot it up into a larger pot or plant it in to their final pot straight away. A great hot tip is to feed your plants every other day with a weak solution of a potash-rich liquid fertiliser, such as Tomorite. You'll be rewarded with masses of flowers throughout the summer on plants about 30-40cm tall.

        These prefer a freely draining soil, so are not ideal if your soil holds water for any length of time.

      Pelargoniums are not hardy so you will need to wait until after the last spring frost. In London it is usually safe to plant out from mid May.
