Geranium ‘Samobor’ forms a loose, bushy plant with striking two-toned burgundy and green, multi-lobed leaves. It flowers profusely in late May-early June with very showy burgundy flowers. It spreads slowly, but also self-seeds, and appears to come true to form and color. We have not noticed any significant deer browsing. In our garden, this plant definitely prefers more shade than sun.
