I love Geraniums and Pelargoniums, especially the old-fashioned varieties and the ivy ones (the trailing kind). I used to have some of the rose-scented and apple-scented - need to get some more some day! These are what I have at the moment.
I have the wild geraniums growing in my yard (Geranium maculatum). They are perennials and bloom in late May where I live, and stand about 1-2 feet tall.
This is called Geranium sanguinium 'nanum', a perennial. It's supposed to be a miniature (6" tall), but mine grows to about a foot or so and spreads more than I'd like it to. The grass on the right is Hakonecheloa Grass.
This one is Geranium 'biokovo', also a Spring perennial, and it's about 8" tall. A very pale pink with pink stamens - very pretty with a wild Columbine and Lily of the Valley in the background!
Now, for the annuals (or zonals) ~ Madame Langguth with white variegated leaves.
Mr. Wren - one of the antique varieties
Velma Cox, another with variegated leaves that I picked up at a local garden center.
I love this one! It's a Regal Geranium, otherwise known as the Martha Washington Geranium. They have large flowers. I got this at my church's plant sale in the Spring and I don't know which variety it is. Can't wait until it grows up!
Appleblossom Rosebud - this was Queen Victoria's favorite geranium! I bought this, and Mr. Wren, a few years ago from Select Seeds, of which this photo is from. Mine isn't blossoming at the moment.
And there you have them! See you on Rednesday!
