Geranium ‘Black ‘n White’ adds bold contrast to garden beds. Unique color combination, with white, silver-veined flowers set off against near-black foliage. The low-growing clumps of deeply-divided deep-purple leaves sit on reddish-brown stems which add to the color depth. Foliage also features dark green flushes at times. From UK Geranium breeders Cyril Foster and Robin Moss.
