Geraniums are among the most popular flowering plants grown in the United States. They are easy to grow and can be used in many types of gardens such as ground beds, planter boxes, hanging baskets and pots. They are ideal for flanking entrance-ways and adding color to border plantings. They attract considerable attention when grown in containers on patios or in bal-cony gardens.
Potted geraniums have been popular holiday gift items for years, especially at Easter and on Mother’s Day. Some species and varieties also make good indoor plants.
