Peralgonium cordifolium var. rubrocinctum

12th December 2009

I bought this last year at a plant fair from a man who promised it was hardy in an unheated tunnel. In brief, I think he overstated the case. Excellent red stems, and I am prepared to forgive the leggy habit, but it struggled in the conservatory and certainly wouldn't have made it in the greenhouse.
Footnote: In the conservatory it stopped struggling, and not in a good way!
