Pelargoniums – although usually called Geraniums – are a longtime favorite of gardeners. They are easy to grow, colourful and don’t require a lot of attention.

Geraniums have been sighted virtually all over the planet, even in deserts. This versatility serves it well, given the diversity that it shows as a species.

Geraniums come in many shapes and colours. They can be upright, variegated (mutli-coloured on the edges), pungent in smell, and some can trail.

Geraniums are popular bedding plants, providing a burst of colour or fragrance throughout summer. They’re easy to grow and thrive in terracotta pots as well as traditional bedding displays.

They work well planted on their own or combined with other plants such as lavender and nemesia. Some types of geranium are perfect for growing in hanging baskets.

They may have minor imperfections. Grown in a beautiful garden in Central Queensland, sold as is.

Care tips:

A sun loving plant the Geranium needs at least 5 to 6 hours of sun a day. They like to be watered regularly but let their soil dry out between drinks. Geraniums grow beautifully in well drained soil and also in pots and hanging baskets.

Most geraniums grow in a low spreading habit. They come in a large variety of colours, shapes, and sizes allowing you to pick the right style for your garden.

Warning: All parts of Geraniums are potentially poisonous to cats, dogs and other animals because they contain Geraniol and Linalool which can lead to GI upset, vomiting, depression, anorexia, ataxia, muscle weakness and dermatitis.

If you notice your dog or cat eating leaves or blooms off your geraniums, make sure to contact your vet on what to do next.

Geraniums aren’t poisonous to humans though although handling them can cause your hands to be a bit itchy sometimes.

Aside from their ornamental purpose, Geraniums have played a major role in traditional medicine, especially in Africa.

For centuries, Geraniums were used in modern herbal medicine by such tribes as the Fingos, Xhosas, Zulus and Basothos.

Indeed, the herbal medicine practitioners were aware of its medicinal properties, and recommended Geranium roots to help reduce symptoms of respiratory infections, among which were included pneumonia, sinusitis, cough, pharyngitis, sore throat and common colds.

Moreover, this perennial plant was called upon to prevent secondary infections like chronic bronchitis.
