Today's Flowers - Geranium/Pelargonium?

window

2 Okt 08


"Geranium" is also the common name of members of the genus Pelargonium, which were formerly classified in the cranesbill genus. True Geraniums are frequently distinguished from the less hardy Pelargoniums as (rather redundantly) "hardy geraniums" by gardeners and in the horticultural trade. One can make the distinction between the two by looking at the flowers: Geranium has symmetrical flowers, while Pelargonium has irregular or maculate petals. Other former members of the genus are now classified in genus Erodium, including the plants known as filarees in North America.

  1. "Louis's" mother always had geraniums in the flower beds of her home.

  2. I think your text got me a little more confused than clarifying the geranium names. There's a geranium annual (is that what you have in your box?) and a geranium perennial (cranesbills).

    And the bottom is nasturtium, which I have all over my backyard. Is that connected to the above text in any way?

    Beautiful flowers and photos.
