    A trailing, ivy-leaved pelargonium with luscious, deep reddish-maroon petals that look like crushed velvet. As a contrast, the fresh green leaves will often have a central blotch of plum. It looks great spilling over the edges of pots or containers and associates really well with rich purples and near-blacks.

    'Choun Cho' is available as a collection of three plants. They will be dispatched directly from our specialist grower of rarer pelargoniums, and are available as a collection of three plants in 6.5cm peat pots.

    As soon as you receive the collection you will need to pot them up into larger pots or plant them in to their final pots 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.

    Please note that as we grow these pelargoniums especially for you, we need to take full payment when you place your order so as to reserve stock for you. The pelargoniums will then be despatched to you at the dates given as they become ready.

      Comments about Pelargonium 'Choun Cho':

      Pelargonium is lovely in pots and lasts for long,
      and can be combined with other things. This variety
      provides the dark, deep wine colour which is very
      attractive, and it does survive the winter on the patio which came as a happy surprise.

        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.
