Geranium 'Tiny Monster'

The Tiny Monster is one of the best existing Geraniums. It was bred by Rolf Offenthal - remember his name, because fantastic plants leave his nursery - by crossing Geranium sanguineum with Geranium psilostemon.

Tiny Monster maintained the good qualities of both parents. At us it has been blooming already for two weeks, and in last October it was still blooming. It blooms continuously, you do not have to remove the dry flowers. It grows about fifty centimeters high and one-one and a half meter large (!) without aggressively sprading. It tolerates drought and lives also in part-shade. Can you expect more from a Geranium? Yes! In the autumn its leaves turn into beautiful orange and red colors. And it can be bought at us, in the Hegede Nursery.

I've been looking for a good garden shot of Tiny Monster to use in a talk I'm giving soon. Would it be possible for me to use this photo of your garden?
with thanks,
