Geraniums Rock Gardens and Containers

Most geraniums in this section require excellent drainage. They can be grown in containers or rock gardens, and most of them require at least half a day's sun. Plants may need some protection from sun in the afternoon in areas with high summer temperatures. Thick walled containers which keep plant roots cool will help to ensure the plant's survival.
