Pelargonium 'Sil Gesa' | Rating: 0 votes | Print / Pdf

Pelargonium species are numerous and are commonly referred to as geraniums, although they are not actually true geraniums. Pelargoniums come in a variety of colours, including bicoloured and tricoloured varieties. The strikingly beautiful flowers have petals that vary in appearance depending on the species, such as saucer-shaped or elongated petals. Pelargoniums enjoy areas of full sunlight or partial shade with fertile soil that is well-drained. Pelargoniums are ideal for growing in pots or containers, thereby providing a great deal of flexibility in terms of garden design. They can be placed on patios, within courtyard or city gardens, or even indoors on windowsills.
