Geranium is one of the most beautiful and decorative plants in the world. For decades, its cultivation has been carried out in different locations especially to decorate characteristic balconies and ancient windows. Many medieval-style towns decorate the old mullioned windows with these plants precisely because they have the gift of making any place appear original and rustic. Yet geranium, despite being so decorative, is a very simple plant that over time has undergone several hybridizations so as to become a botanical species required almost as a collector's piece.
Where to buy Geraniums
Geranium belongs to the geraniacee family and has the botanical name of Pelargonium. Climbing geraniums are the most requested perhaps because they are also used as hanging plants and not only as decorative plants resting on special supports and grids. They are very easy to find in nurseries where we find countless species, especially hybrids, similar to tender carnations or delicious roses. In the nurseries you will find other varied varieties of geraniums, all very beautiful, starting from the simple Pelargonium zonali which bloom for the whole year and ending with delicate fragrant geraniums such as the Pelargonium odoratissimum also called "Malva d'Egitto". There are even very particular geraniums that have a fairly high price and that are suitable only for collectors also because they need a lot of care and among other things they are not on the market because they are not particularly beautiful.
