Geraniums Galore!
 
Our full set up of Geraniums in selling section B is complete.  Easily one of the most reliable and versatile plant species there is, offering a long season even in a cooler, wet Fall with very limited pest or disease concerns.

The full Geranium set up includes: 
Read on below for more details for each!
Geraniums Cumbanita Rose Splash
Geranium 'Cumbanita Rose Splash'
Geranium Sarita Neon Sizzle
Geranium 'Sarita Neon Sizzle'
Interspecific Geraniums

Over the last six years or so, Calliope 'Dark Red' has become our best seller in the hanging baskets!  Again for this season we have all the colours available including 'Scarlet Fire', 'Burgundy', 'Hot Pink' and 'Lavender Rose', as well as the first bi-colour in the Calliope series: 'Crimson Flame'.

Another stunning bi-colour, which was a top performer in our trials for 2016 is Cumbanita 'Rose Splash', which is also an interspecific series of Geranium.  Also choose from Cumbanita 'Lilac' and Cumbanita 'Deep Rose'.

The beautiful single blooming, Interspecific Sarita series has an extremely vigorous growth habit and impressive bloom power.

After rating very high in our trials again, it is still sure to please, with colours like:
  • 'Wild Salmon'
  • 'Punch'
  • 'Neon Sizzle'
  • 'Lilac Splash'
  • 'Dark Red'
  • 'Sunstar Red'
Ivy Geraniums

Ivy Geranium 'Focus Red Ice' was a smash hit again last year and is back in spades!  It offers very consistent variegation in the flower, nice zoning on the leaf and has a vigorous growth habit in comparison to the other bi-colour varieties.  In addition to the ever popular bi-colour varieties is 'Precision Burgundy Ice', which also shows excellent colour consistency, while offering a more compact growth habit.

An Ivy Geranium series we are really getting excited about is "Great Balls of Fire"! These boast perfect form, with tight, double flowers having less petal drop.

Standouts in this series are:
  • 'Blue'
  • 'Deep Rose'
  • 'Violet Blue'

Zonal Geranium Americana Salmon

Zonal Geraniums

In Zonal Geraniums, there are some wonderful, reliable performers year in and year out.  The Rocky Mountain series and the Americana series are consistently our top sellers due to their vigour and size which is perfect for either the landscape or containers.

Rocky Mountain 'Dark Red' is our #1 selling Zonal Geranium followed by 'Dynamo Dark Red' which is a unique, blue toned red colour.  

The Fantasia series is remarkable for a darker leafed, medium growing, sturdy stemmed choice.  A standout in this series is Fantasia 'Strawberry Sizzle'.

The Big Ezee series has big broad heads of flowers on shorter and wider growth. 'Fuchsia Blue' has been added to the list to complete the series which also includes 'Dark Red', 'Neon', and 'Pink'.

New additions to our Zonal Geranium list this season:

  • 'Belmonte Night' - The darkest red we have ever seen
  • 'Trend Blue Touch' (previously called Eco Blue Touch) - Finally the bluest lavender colour
  • 'Savannah Really Red' - Joining it's sister 'Oh So Orange' from last season, the best orange Zonal Geranium
  • 'Hot Spot Series' - Some deep bi-coloured flowers above a great vigorous growth habit. This series includes 'Hot Spot Kiss' and 'Hot Spot Purple'
Exotic Geranium Crystal Palace

Exotic & Scented Geraniums

Exotic geraniums have some real appeal with their unique leaf colouring and zoning. Back this season are 'Cherry Night' and 'Salmon Night' showcasing small, tight, doubleflowers above dark leaves with a narrow green edge.

Returning this season after being unavailable last season, while we built up stock for propagating, is 'Crystal Palace'! Previously, this was our #1 selling Exotic Geranium, boasting beautiful three toned leaves of chartreuse, mid-green and dark green and beautiful, bright orange, single blooms.

On the scented geranium tables, look for some trusted returnees such as 'Citronella', 'Chocolate', 'Pink Capitatum', 'Lemon Fizz', and 'Quercifolia' (Wasp Shocker), as well as 'Lemona', a nice compact, small leafed lemon scented geranium.

Stunning Alstroemeria!
 
Come in and check out our selection of Alstroemeria (Princess Lilies) temporarily on table A12 South.  This stunning, fairly compact Alstroemeria is perfect for the balcony, patio and in the garden and will give you colour all summer long.
 
Choose from the five varieties 'Feline' (pink), 'Kate' (red), 'Ariane' (yellow), 'Amina' (orange) and 'Louise' (purple).

You can even try overwintering these beauties by placing them in a cold but frost free location to allow them to go dormant.  Then in the following Spring, simply clean off the dead foliage on the soil surface and wait for fresh growth to come out of the root system!

Osteospermum!
 
Our selection of Osteospermum also known as Cape Daisies, are looking fantastic!

These cold hardy annuals can take the colder temperatures we have been having and are beginning to bloom in shades of white, yellow, orange, burgundy and pink.

Choose from best sellers such as 'Blue Eyed Beauty' and 'Voltage Yellow', or from the most heat tolerant Serenity 'Lavender Frost'.  '4D Sunburst' boasts an improved growth habit and yellow double flowers, and the new 'Margarita Orange Flare' looks really incredible.

This great selection can be found on Table D13!
