Advantages Of Planting Wild Geranium

There are many advantages of planting hardy geranium plants known to sport small to medium sized flowers with notched leaves. Geraniums earned the description hardy due to its low maintenance care requirements and its ability to withstand harsher climates. This plant is a favored option for gardeners and landscapers, and it grows best in zones 3 to 9. This pleasant scented plant is actually a wildflower. It grows anywhere from 6 inches to 8 feet high, depending on variety. The expansion width is generally from 6 inches to 4 feet across. It is an excellent pick for garden borders, walkway edges, rock gardens and any areas needing more green and colorful vegetation.

Caring For Wild Geranium

While this plant loves the sun, some varieties do well even in quite shady spots. Most prefer afternoon or morning sun. Too much sun all day is generally not a good idea. These plants do best when not over watered. They like a good water drenching only about once a week. It is recommended that the gardener prune back these plants around mid-season to ward off mold and mildew growth commonly encountered if planted in a hot and humid region. Geraniums planted in more temperate climates only need pruned when their typical irregular growth patterns become too untidy. Remember to keep at least 2-3 inches of the stem close to the ground.

Benefits Of Wild Geranium

This versatile plant is great for floral or vegetable gardens. Many flowers, fruits and vegetables attract pests, rodents or other animals. Planting geraniums helps keep these unwanted visitors away. The spicy pine scent of a geranium flower naturally repels many plant damaging animals and other pests. Geraniums come in several varieties of flower colors including shades of pinks, purples, whites and blues. These beautiful plants will typically bloom more if they receive 6-8 hours of daily sunlight. Hardy geraniums are gorgeous plants that are ideal selections to add color and foliage wherever needed.

New things growing in my beds

Too early to say. They just really popped up a few days ago. Everything that I got from you guys went in the dirt and is coming out of the dirt on its own. I'm just thrilled and can't wait to see how they will look in the future. Thanks!
