Pelargonium 'Americana Bright Red'


Description: One of the most popular plants for containers, Geraniums are known for their large vibrant lollipop blooms. With its bold color palate and cluster design, zonal geraniums are certainly an eye-catching gem in either a garden environment or all on its own.

Height: Grows 12″ to 16” tall How To Grow: Plant in full sun to part sun. Outstanding Features: Zonal Geraniums are the preferred choice of geraniums for many gardeners for their brighter colors, darker foliage, and larger blooms. Tips: Pinch off dead blooms to promote new blooms. Uses: Garden Bed, Containers, Landscapes, Xeriscapes
