Dramatic native of Madeira likes moist conditions and shade. Biennial or short-lived perennial. Largest of all geranium leaves- to 8in. across, overlapping, glossy, deeply divided, shaped like giant snowflakes. Reddish brown leafstalks help buttress the 3-4ft "trunk" supporting hundreds of densely packed, fuzzy buds and magenta-eyed deep pink blossoms. Blooms early spring through midsummer.
