Geranium x oxonianum ‘Katherine Adele’ is a superior cultivar that has bold red/maroon blotched foliage. Large, purple veined silvery pink flowers are set off by the fanciful mound of deeply cut, dark green leaves splashed with burgundy. You may want to trim the plant to maintain its tidy form and provide enough sun to keep its rich coloring. This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and birds but is resistant to deer. It self-sows freely; deadhead if you do not want volunteer seedlings next season.
Noteworthy Characteristics: ‘Katherine Adele’ is grown for its interesting foliage, which is evergreen, aromatic, mottled burgundy and has a velvet/fuzzy-texture. In full sun it produces handsome mounds to 15 x 15 inches. The smaller habit makes this the perfect plant for the front of the border, where it can weave around spent spring bulb foliage and instantly refresh the bed. This is a very beautiful plant that will be greatly admired by visitors to the garden. It can be used for the front of flowerbeds, in cottage gardens or in mass for ground cover and edging. This Geranium is also suitable for growing in containers.
