Ivy-Leaf Geraniums / Pelargonium x peltatum

Pelargonium x peltatum ‘GLOBAL Soft Pink’ – This Ivy-Leaf Geranium is part of the GLOBAL Series and was introduced in 2002. It features full rounded flower heads of clear soft pink florets with deep cherry-pink streaks at the base of each petal. These Geraniums were first grown in European gardens in the early 1700’s. Grows 9-12″ high by 18″ wide. Zone 9.

Pelargonium x peltatum ‘GLOBAL Stars and Stripes’ – This spectacular cultivar features semi-double bicolor blooms made up of white petals sharply edged in bright red, with subtle accent streaks in the middle. Ivy-Leaf Geraniums require well-drained soil and prefer to dry out a little between waterings. Best in part to full sun. Grows 9-12″ high by 16-20″ wide. Hardy to zone 9.

Pelargonium peltatum ‘White Nicole’ – An unusual cultivar with full flowers heads much like a Zonal Geranium but with pendulous bright green ivy-like foliage. The pure white to soft pink double blooms are quite variable in nature and due to its lack of hardiness, these are often grown as frost tender annuals here in coastal BC. Grows 12″ high by 18-24″ wide. Hardy to zone 9.

Pelargonium x peltatum ‘GLOBAL Merlot’ – This Pelargonium was bred by David Lemon and introduced in 1998. The double blooms are a rich burgundy-red (with bright magenta stamens and centers) and it is often grown as a solitary specimen in hanging baskets or window boxes. It is a cross of ‘Nicole’ and ‘Summer Showers’. Grows 8″ high by 16-20″ wide. Zone 9.

Pelargonium x peltatum ‘GLOBAL Light Lavender’ – A 2008 introduction with cheery lavender-pink blooms and deep cerise highlights peeking through from the center of each floret. Ivy-Leaf Geraniums are heavy feeders and when grown in containers should be fed every 10 days with a water soluble fertilizer high in phosphorus. Grows 12″ high by 18-24″. Z9.
