AAS Bedding Plant Award Winner Geranium 'Black Velvet Rose'
'The unusual bicolor leaf pattern distinguishes 'Black Velvet Rose' from all
other hybrid geraniums. Each leaf has a black center with a green leaf edge.
The exceptionally dark foliage contrasts with the bright rose florets and
each floret has a small white eye. 'Black Velvet Rose' proved to be heat
tolerant, flowering freely throughout the growing season. A strong plant,
'Black Velvet Rose' can be 10-14 inches tall and spread 14 to 18 inches
depending upon available nutrients and water. Best performance will occur in
full sun. 'Black Velvet Rose' is perfect for container culture.
