My zonal geranium cuttings that i started in Jan have been bloomin since late February. I have mass reproduced them for mass planting throughout the yard. Here are a couple of pics. These will form nice, evergreen hedges within this year, and the best part is that they bloom 10 out of 12 months.

Hello! It's an honor to be the "first" *smiles*. Anyway, these are my babies. The coral one in the blue pot I grew from a piece that had fallen off of the moma; it must have been only 2 inches long when I started just in May of last year, maybe later than that like July.

This is my "friendship plant" that my garden buddy bought for me. I was sooo afraid to have it b/c I have failed at "ivy" plants like other ivy geraniums and just regular ivies. However, this one has been going good. I guess because it was given with love....

This one I bought for the mixed pot that it's a part of. I'm not usually a "red flower" person but when I saw this one I fell in love with it....


Over in the big, round, clay pot is a fusia geranium that I bought just b/c I wanted something to put in that pot, but what I love about it is that the two blooms on the end have been blooming for almost 3 weeks now! I know, that's crazy!!! That's a biggie for where I live.....

I couldn't leave out my newest "baby". I cut this one off of the momma that's planted at my mom's house b/c it was too leggy, so I'm nursing it like I did the coral one. I'm excited to see how well it does. It's a very light pink edging with a slightly deeper pink center..........Sorry for the poor quality of the pic I was trying to snap it quickly...
