Geranium

Geranium is a genus of plants that includes more than 400 species. These species come in annual, biennial, and perennial types. Geraniums bloom flowers that typically feature five circular petals that come in shades of white, pink, purple, and blue. Also known as "cranesbills," geraniums thrive in temperate regions. Popular species of geraniums include ivy-leafed geraniums, pink expectation, pink satisfaction, and Martha Washington geraniums.

Geraniums are popular plants for the home gardener because they are reliable. Their durable flowers can withstand wind and rain, adding color to landscapes without wilting or falling apart. Geraniums are typically planted in the spring months once the weather warms. They are planted in direct sunlight in an area with good water drainage, which helps flowers bloom.

Another reason why gardeners regularly use geraniums is because they grow in any type of soil, as long as it is well-aerated and porous. They do not have to be planted deeply in order to thrive. Insects do not cause significant problems for geraniums, making them an appealing and durable plant.

While many species of geranium are planted for these features, some species are classified as annual or biennial weeds, including the Carolina geranium. This plant typically blooms in April and May. Regular maintenance of lawn and landscape areas as well as chemical control can help reduce the spread of those geraniums, including the Carolina geranium, that are classified as weeds.
