Hi Terry, Hi everyone,
I'm new here and not an expert on geraniums, but I do love growing them in
flower boxes and other containers, as well as in the garden. I have a
comment for Terry and a question.
Terry, I don't know the ballerina geranium, but my experience with all of
my other geraniums is that I get many more blossoms by deadheading, and I
do seem to have to cut back my Johnson Blue's to keep the blooms going.
My question is for Terry and anyone else who can comment. You mention that
you have a geranium called "Patricia", and I wonder if you can describe it
for me. A couple of years ago when I bought my Johnson Blues, I also
purchased another geranium that looked exactly like the Johnson Blue,
except for the color of the flower, which was a pink. Otherwise, the plant
and the size and shape of the flower were the same. My Johnson Blues came
back the next year, but the pink variety did not, and since then I have
been unable in my area to buy replacements. When I purchased it, the pink
variety was marked "Patricia", but the Patricia's I find on the internet
all seem to have a larger flower. What I really want is a "Johnson Blue" in
pink. Any help on a source would be appreciated. I live in Maryland.
