Pelargoniums Uniques

This is a catch-all group of plants, some of which date back to the 1860s in the UK and others of which have been recently hybridized by Jay Kapac in Southern California. They are generally strong growers. The flowers can be small, but the plants are very floriferous. Not all in this group appear to be related to each other.

Geranium 'Orion'

Geranium 'Orion' has beautiful mid blue flowers. It is a tall clumping perennial, (USDA Zones 5 - 9), 24-30 x 36". It does well in full sun in mild summer gardens and morning sun/afternoon shade in hot summers. It can be combined with roses, iris, ornamental grasses and summer bulbs. It needs a horticultural corset when young, (twigs help support it until the clump size increases). See Page 166, The Plant Lovers Guide to Hardy Geraniums. (Photo by Donn Reiners)
