Geranium Growing Information and Photos

The word "Geranium" refers to a huge variety of flowers. There's a separate group of flowers that we call "cranesbills" that are, in botanical terms, also known as "Geraniums" but most people who talk about geraniums are talking about these "Pelargonium" flowers.

Geraniums hail from the southern area of Africa and were first brought to Europe in the early 1600s.

These Geraniums grow in Massachusetts. They grow annually and I generally buy a new plant every spring to use as a potted plant.
