Tips For Growing Geranium (Geranium or Cranesbill)
Geranium (Geranium or Cranesbill) is a large genus of annual and herbaceous perennials found worldwide. The greatest number of ornamental species are native to Europe and South Africa. They are not to be confused with the common bedding geranium which is actually a Pelargonium.
Preferred growing conditions:
- Plant in compost enriched soils including clay. Position in full sun to partial shade. Mulch with commonly available mulch materials.
- Geraniums like moderate soil moisture and should be watered regularly when conditions are dry.
- Deadheading is not necessary. Many modern hybrids are naturally long blooming.
- Fertilize in the fall with a half and half blend of Yum Yum Mix and good quality compost.
- Geraniums don't need to be divided. The width of larger growing varieties can be controlled by cutting off the side shoots from the crown.
- Cut back in late fall after hard frost or wait until early spring.

Comments about High Country Gardens Geranium Rozanne:
This purple bloomer goes on and on from summer to fall. Gets about 2-3 ft side and less than a foot tall. I'm planning on ordering 3 more-the color goes well with all my other plants.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
