The Geranium phaeum is large in size and 75 cm in height; in the spring it assumes a purple colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.

Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them.
