Hardy Geraniums and associated plants


I have just re-joined the Geraniaceae group again. A great group dedicated to all things Geranium, Pelargonium, Erodium and associated plants.

There are some interesting looking specimens in their photo gallery. I notice "those in the know" tend to grow them in pots!!!

Congratulations to you. Well done. I am a geranium(pelargonium) lover too and I grow them in pots and hanging baskets. Although I give them much care, they only last for a year and never grow taller than a foot.I probably grow the wrong species. I was amazed went I visited my native Cyprus in the winter and saw some pelargonium in my sister's back yard, totally neglected and forgotten but very healthy, in full bloom and the size of a large bush. I know they thrive in the mediterranean and need very little water and much-much sunshine.
