Geranium

WGC Geranium Information

Geranium
Cranesbill / Hardy Geranium

Planting:

Set out plants 12 to 15 inches apart in a sunny situation and in virtually any light, welldrained soil. Once established, geraniums will tolerate periods of drought, but perform optimally in moisture-retentive soils; we recommend a summer mulch, especially during the spring flush of growth and where summers are quite warm. Some species will tolerate light or partial shade.


Maintenance:

Geraniums will take about two years to become fully established. Once they’ve done so, they’ll quickly grow and colonize. An annual top-dressing with a balanced fertilizer or compost is beneficial and will improve flower production. Divide as it becomes necessary.


Zones:

Zones 3-8
