Geranium - Pelargonium 'Vancouver Centennial'      

Impulse buy, I loved the leaves and didn’t even look at the label to see if I’d like the flowers.

Bought it from from D’s In LchG when I was getting bedding plants for my Granny.
Said to be a slow grower and slow to take from cuttings but well worth it. Orangey red flowers are not very prolific but that suits me since it’s the foliage I like.

Gleened from the internet:
‘Vancouver Centennial,’ a showy tender perennial grown for its small, deeply-cut, variegated yellow and brick-red leaves, also has delicate clusters of bright-red flowers.
Greenhouse grown plants will flower all year apparently.
Pelargonium x hortum cv ‘Vancouver Centennial’ need full sun to partial shade with a well-drained soil mix.
Water well and allow to dry slightly before watering again.
In the growing season fertilize monthly with 1/2 strenghth balanced fertilizer. Although most geraniums are very drought tolerant, this one does better with regular watering.
During the winter months in the greenhouse restrict water and fertilizer and grow more to the dry side.

This planting is in the Houseplants garden .
