Today’s Flower Fish Geranium

Fish Geranium
Pelargonium x hortorum 'Wilhelm Langguth'
Synonyms: Horseshoe Geranium, Zonal Geranium

The Geraniums have been doing great this year. This one provides a nice contrast between the scarlet flowers and variegated foliage. They are easy to grow and provide a lot of color in the garden. We often over winter a few geraniums as plants but they can also be grown from cuttings.

These other Geraniums have grown well for us, also. This ‘Pink’ from the ‘Survivor’ Series of Geraniums.

Another variety we have used this year is the ‘Patriot’ Geraniums. This is the ‘Salmon’ one but the ‘Bright Red’ and ‘White’ also have nice flowers on bushy plants.

For more flower pictures from around the world check out:
Today’s Flowers . It starts at 18:00 GMT on Sunday.

Normally I don't go for Geraniums but these are pretty sweet! The red one is very intense.

Love these! I don't think I've ever seen a geranium with variegated foliage -- it's gorgeous!
