Pelargonium Hortorum White Splash: White flowers with a dark red eye in the center of the flower. A free blooming, compact plant that draws attention to itself.
Pelargonium Hortorum also known as Zonal Geraniums are a true garden favorite, Pelargonium Hybrids can’t be beat for spectacular vigor and bloom; all summer you can expect several flower heads held on succulent stems to cover the plant. Plants that do not bloom are not receiving enough direct sunlight. If you intend to grow them indoors put the plant in a sunny window.
Zonal Geraniums prefer a dry climate , that means you should avoid flower beds or containers in areas of high humidity or no air circulation or your geraniumw will eventually pick up a diesese called botrytis (a mold that turns the leaves brown gray) . Water thoroughly then allow the top to dry out before watering again.
Keep the leaves dry when watering. Feed spring through summer with a high phosphorus fertilizer to promote blooming.
Pruning your Zonal Geranium will force new growth, btining you more flowers as well as keeping the plant neat and orderly, deadheading (removing spent flowers) will lso keep your plant looking good and promote more blooms
Cut the plant back hard in the spring to keep the plant compact. Pinching off the growing tips will encourage branching.
We are offering a well-established blooming sized plant that is 3 to 5 inches tall.
