I’m fond of hardy geraniums (cranesbills), so was happy to see this new-to-me cultivar. Young ‘Havana Blues’ plants might appear a little on the straggly side until well established, when waving, wiry stems compete en mass to bear the most perfect, jewel-like flower.
The flowers open lavender-blue, developing pearlescent, pinkish tones with age, making ‘Havana Blues’ more characterful than some of the pictures online might suggest. They are large and attractively veined, with dark purple anthers offset against a clear white eye.
This geranium wallichianum cultivar was selected by its breeder, Marco van Noort, for its long flowering season. Regular deadheading will help the plant perform to its full potential.
I’m sharing these as part of regular random, hosted by desleyjanepictures. The idea is to spend a maximum of five minutes photographing your subject from more than one angle, then share a selection of your favourite shots.
