Description

Geranium sanguineum (Blood-red geranium). This is the most common of the cultivated Geraniums and they will tolerant varying weather conditions. The foliage is a rich dark green and the flowers will bloom over a very long period of time.

Outdoors, grow larger species and hybrids in any moderately fertile, well-drained soil. Grow small species and hybrids in humus-rich, sharply drained soil in full sun. Under glass, grow half hardy species in loam-based potting compost with added sharp sand, in bright filtered light. During the growing season, water freely and apply a balanced liquid fertilizer monthly. Water sparingly in winter.
