Ailing geranium

nkm56May 9, 2008

I got this plant a year ago in March, and it has performed beautifully. Honestly, it has not stopped blooming since I got it, even when I brought it indoors for the winter.

But now the leaves are getting this red pattern and then they turn brown and die. Any idea what this could be?

I don't think there's really anything wrong. If it's been performing all winter those are probably just tired old leaves. Like most plants Pelargoniums DO lose their old leaves. I would pull them, cut back any leggy stems, use the pieces for propagation of new plants, then continue care and feeding as before. It's a nice plant, by the way.
