Geranium


U7B4U3.jpg (30357 bytes)


Description:

Well-drained soil is beneficial to all varieties.  Pinch rather heavily after flowering to encourage blooming throughout the summer. This perennial can be a very useful weed smothering, tight nit groundcover. It is at home in almost any soil as along as its well drained. It needs to be planted in an area of full sun to partial shade and also must be cut down, after flowering, almost all the way to the ground. Geraniums are self seeding, and fairly adaptable to short periods of dry conditions. These plants require minimal care once well established and are free form pests and diseases. Pea staking can be useful in wetter areas because plants will have a taller stature
