Emerging Geraniums

I like perennial geraniums. I think this is a under-utilized perennial in our gardens.

This is the native, geranium macropetalum.


  1. I like them, too. My favorites are 'Johnson's Blue' and the native Geranium maculatum.

  2. Last year I was feeling bold and I dug up a bunch of the native geraniums I had planted in the past. I sliced the rhizomes into 1-2" pieces and replanted them. The survival rate looks very promising from what I can see so far this year.

    It really is one of the more difficult plants to collect seed from.

    1. Dividing up the rhizomes really is so much more efficient, though! It make a great ground cover.
