  • Garden Performance
    Geraniums aren't just about big blooms. Exotic Leaf Geraniums enhance the garden with stunning foliage not found on regular leaf geraniums. Enjoy the vibrant yellow-green foliage of Crystal Palace Gem, or the patriotic maple-leaf shaped leaves of Vancouver Centennial. These geraniums also bloom very well, you just don't get the big spectacular blooms found on regular Zonal Geraniums.

  • Growing Guide
    Treat the Exotic Leaf Geraniums just like your regular zonal geraniums: water only when completely dry, fertilize weekly, dead head as necessary.
