Geranium is a large genus of plants, commonly called cranesbill, containing around 422 species. Plants are annual, biennial and perennial, and though mostly common to the Mediterranean, can be found in temperate and tropical regions too. Geraniums are characterised by their cleft and broadly circular leaves and the five-petalled flowers that come in colours of pink, purple, white and blue. Flowers often have distinctive veining for additional attraction. Plants normally bloom extremely well and as they grow in most conditions, are a garden favourite. Some species can also be pruned back hard after flowering to encourage a second flush of blooms.
