Geraniums come in a variety of colours - most often pink, blue and white. Their flowers are not as showy as their cousins, the "Pelargoniums". They are a staple in any garden, being easy to care for, dependable as well as lovely.
Geraniums are often found planted in the garden or rockery and not in containers. They come back year and year. The newer varieties have longer blooming periods and some will bloom from spring until first frost.
Seed Geraniums vs. Zonal Geraniums.
Seed Geraniums, like the name implies, grows directly from the seed. Zonal Geraniums, however, are cut directly from the mother plant and regrown. While Zonal Geraniums do not produce seeds, the plant itself is hardier than their Seed counterparts, who are prone to petal shattering.
