Geranium Seeds

Pelargonium hortorum, P. peltatum

A red Geranium is one of the summer icons.  What would a cottage garden do without one or two? There are very few flowers that look as good in a pot as do Geraniums. They have beautigul foliage with large clusters of blossoms in colors of red, pink, rose, orange, salmon, lavender, white and violet.  Most use geraniums as a bedding plant, however we think that they do best in a container. Most gardeners treat common geraniums as annuals, but in the Coastal and Tropical South where it doesn’t freeze, they’re perennials. Succulent stems become woody with age, and plants grow into picturesque shrubs. Outside these areas, you must store the plants indoors near a window during winter if you wish to grow them this way.The second most popular type is the ivy geranium (P. peltatum), named for its glossy green, ivy-shaped leaves. Rather than growing upright like common geraniums, this one cascades. Use it to plunge from hanging baskets, window boxes, or the edge of a big planter.
