Geranium Ivy Imperial Series
Available to wholesale growers from July 2018
Bred by Syngenta, the new Geranium Ivy Imperial's are among the strongest performers in the market. With high heat tolerance and drought tolerance, these varieties offer reliability and dependability in the garden.
The Imperial series features large, semi double blooms in unique colours and bi-colours on a well branched, trailing/mounding habit. These heat loving plants have a clean, crisp appearance and look fantastic in hanging baskets, combination plantings or pots.
Backed by a long history of superior performance, the Geranium Ivy's are easy to care for and offer plenty of blooms almost year round with maximum flower power.
