Ivy-Leaved Pelargoniums originate from P. peltatum, and are so called because they have the characteristic trailing form of ivy. The leaves are generally glossy in appearance and the trailing habit can be anywhere from 15 cms – 2 metres all according to the variety. Ideally suited to hanging baskets or anywhere that requires a plant with a trailing habit. As it is a perennial, it is far more tolerant in summer bedding schemes than many of the usual bedding plants. It also has an extended flowering season much longer than annual summer bedding.
