If you’re looking for a white flower with a bit of added intrigue, splashy Geranium pratense 'Striatum Akaton' makes for a strong candidate. While the predominantly white flowers act as starry spotlights, the cheeky violet flecks and stripes on the petals make it a whole lot more fun and interesting. Breezy and carefree, this easy-going upright variety with wonderful wafting stems brings a soft, airy feel to the space!

Happy in sun or shade, Geraniums have long been loved for their unfussy nature and ability to perk up virtually any spot. Once established, Geranium pratense 'Striatum Akaton' form a cushion of soft green leaves, gradually increasing in size over the years to pad out its space. Low maintenance and drought tolerant, this hardy perennial looks after itself for most of the year – perfect if you’re busy with other things!
