Amazing Flower compositions with pelargonium for containers and garden flowerbeds

Pelargonium plants are a genus of herbaceous and mostly evergreen perennials. Pelargoniums are native to southern Africa and grow well in desert and mountainous areas. These flowering plants are often grown as houseplants in window boxes and hanging baskets.

Geraniums are one of the most popular balcony and garden flowers in this country as they do not require a lot of care and flower all summer long. Geraniums flower in the widest variety of colors: From white to pink, red and purple: all the colors are possible. The flowers on umbels are often two-tone or patterned with stripes or dark speckles. The variety ‘Mosaic Purple’, for example, has beautiful striped and speckled petals. Geraniums require cooler nights in order to continue flowering until the frost – this applies in particular for Regal Geraniums.

How to Plant and Grow Pelargoniums

Pelargoniums make wonderful bedding plants in a garden flower bed, though they can also be grown in pots and window boxes.

  1. Plant pelargoniums in the early spring. The best time to plant pelargoniums is early spring in warm climates and mid-spring after the last frost in cooler climates.
  2. Choose a sunny spot in your garden. To help your outdoor plants thrive, choose a spot where your plant will receive full sun.
  3. Use well-draining soil. Before planting potted pelargoniums, prepare a pot with well-draining potting soil.
  4. Give pelargoniums ample room to grow. If you’re starting from seeds, plant the seeds at least two inches into the ground and at least six inches apart. If you’re using young plants, dig a hole as deep as the root ball and space the plants one foot apart.
  5. Water pelargoniums regularly. Water your plants once every two to three days during the warm growing season.
