Brimstone. 16 September 2000.
Brimstone. My previous garden in Wiltshire. 7 August 1999.
This is the Geranium, so often found on market stalls and in garden centres during May.
The only butterfly that I've ever seen on a Geranium is the Brimstone, but that is a good enough reason to grow Geraniums as far as I'm concerned. I saw a Brimstone on a red Geranium amongst the summer bedding display in Marlborough, Wiltshire in August 2002.
It's possible to keep the plants over the winter by hanging them up in a garage or shed.
Plant Type: tender perennial
Flowers in summer
