It is that time of the year when my dormant geraniums are coaxed out of their sleep to begin sprouting leaves and blooms. Actually, it has been over 45 days since I planted some of the geranium plants that I placed in a plastic garbage bag last Fall. Right before the frost hit last October I dried out at least two dozen strong specimens before putting them in my storeroom to go to sleep for a few months.
What you see on this page are a few plants that sprang back to life after being dormant for at least three months. The geranium below is a variegated variety that is a beautiful pink color. The other plant you are looking at has rich dark green leaves and I believe this is my hot pink variety.
I started some ivy geranium cuttings in January but I believe my watering was not consistent and the severe cold caused too much temperature variation. Only one of them germinated.
Last year I grew over 20 Ivy geraniums from cuttings. I hope you experiment with your own cuttings. Let me know if you have any questions about the amazing results you can have by propagating geraniums from cuttings.
