Tried & True Geranium

Tried & True Geranium

The most common geraniums available at garden centers actually belong to the genus Pelargonium. They are from the same plant family as the hardy perennial Geranium (Cranesbill), but Pelargoniums (pellarr GOE nee um) are tender perennials only hardy in milder climates. Geraniums are best planted in full sun though some varieties can tolerate some shade. The most common types include:

Zonal: This group is prized for its large beautiful flower heads and the leaves have a dark zonal pattern. Some zonal geraniums have fancier leaves edged by various colours.

Ivy: This type has ivy-like leaves, a trailing habit and can tolerate a fair amount of shade. They are perfect for hanging baskets and window boxes.

Martha Washington or Regal: Large frilly flower clusters make this type of geranium a prized plant in the garden. They have woody stems and can grow up to 2 feet tall.

Scented geraniums: These geraniums are grown not for their flowers, but primarily for their fragrant leaves. Available in various scents such as ginger, mint, citrus and rose.
