Re: revelation - geraniums


How much did you pay for your small geraniums? I have not ordered from
Plant Delights yet...but I had printed out the photo and put with my
bills to buy on my next pay period. I'll take a picture of my small
little garden and send it to you. Sometimes..you just come up with a
really nice combination...without even giving it much thought! I love it
when that happens.

  Jesse, I'd love to see pics of the small garden you described. I just 
checked PDN's geranium, Ouch! $12.00! I put in 31 small (4 inch that I 
moved up to quart 6 wks b4 planting) ones. They are small, but this plant 
thickens up in a few years. This plant has the Award of Garden Merit from 
RHS. I like the habit of var. striatum better than the regular Geranium 
sanguineum because it is shorter. It doesn't splay open as much. You can 
shear it back as the flowering slows down and it will put out more, but I've 
found that even without the shearing it will throw sporadic flowers 
throughout the season. The fall color is a lovely maroon.
