Geranium Red Annual 11 inch Decorative Container
The geranium is an iconic, fragrant annual garden flower. Growers first fell in love with the geranium flower over 200 years ago, and it’s not hard to see why. Geraniums are appreciated for their long blooming season that starts in spring and can last into fall. If plants are kept above 45 to 50 degrees, they may also bloom in winter. This beauty is sure to brighten up porches and landscapes from spring to fall!

- Plant geraniums in an area that will get at least 6 hours of sun a day, in fertile, well-draining soil.
- Regular pruning can help keep your geranium in shape. Pinch back new growth several times in late spring to early summer to encourage branching. Faded flowers should be deadheaded regularly to boost blooming and extend the flowering season.
- Geraniums prefer fertile, neutral to alkaline, well-drained soil.
- Apply a balanced liquid fertilizer monthly in spring and early summer. Over fertilizing can result in poor blooming, as it redirects the plant’s energy to foliage growth rather than flowering.
- Although geraniums have fairly low water requirements once established, consistent watering is best. Not enough water can cause leaf drop and wilting and too much water can cause them to get spindly. Allow the soil to dry somewhat between watering, but not completely. Water moderately during growth and sparingly in winter. Both over and under watering cause stress to the plant and may cause leaves to turn red.
