I’m so proud of my Rose Splash geranium! The semi-double flowers are a rich rose pink with red spots all around the center. The foliage is dark green and forms a perfect little mound.

The foliage of P. fruticosum has a delicate ferny look and a light pungent scent. The flowers are a lovely pale pink. If it weren’t for the flowers, it wouldn’t even look like a geranium.

Pelargonium elongatum, also known as Upright Coconut Geranium

Upright Coconut is a charming little jewel. So much to love: the zoned leaves, the tiny butter yellow flowers that always point down, the ridiculously large cranesbills. It starts readily from seed and thank goodness, because it doesn’t seem to live for very long. Think of it as a biennial.

Pelargonium 'Old Scarlet Unique'

Old Scarlet Unique knows the meaning of the word “RED”. The leaves are very fuzzy and this gives them a distinctive silvery appearance. Scarlet is a pungent scented geranium.

Southernwood Geranium has a spicy-woodsy scent like Southernwood Artemisia.
Southernwood Geranium has a spicy-woodsy scent like Southernwood Artemisia.

I love this scented geranium so much! The foliage is an elegant grey-green, tastefully accented with medium-sized white flowers. Faint purple streaking completes the ensemble. And even though Southernwood looks dainty and frilly, it seems to be a tolerant and vigorous plant.
