If you want to grow some beautiful flowers that will spread and cover some ground, try geraniums. They are easy to grow, come in many colors and are very hardy. They will thrive in sun & part sun. They are perennials & will keep coming back to delight you. Many of the newer varieties flower almost continuously from May until autumn and will provide bright color in your garden. Keep them trimmed, so they don’t become gangly.
These flowers are easiest to start from small plants purchased at your local plant center. Choose plants that sport colors you are attracted to. They can be planted mixed into containers with other plants and will help attract pollinators.
