Geranium Patricia — 19 Comments

  1. Hi Allistair.
    We have a similar Geranium in our Garden named Psilostemon but that is normally finished by the end of August .The long flowering time of Patricia is a real bonus .Thanks for sharing it with us .

  2. Congratulations on completing your A-Z! This looks like an excellent cross. I love G. psilostemon, and although some of my plants are still flowering, they account for about 15% of them. The rest are looking pretty sad so I will give ‘Patricia’ a whirl. Thank you!

  3. Preaching to the converted here Alistair, geraniums are amongst my favourite plants they are just so versatile thriving in sun or even deep shade depending on the one you choose. Many of mine are still flowering despite having been battered by rain and wind all “summer”, as good a factor as any for you to be happy to have moved to the east of the country away from here.

    • Hi Rick, last Winter and Spring here in Fife was dry and relatively mild. Summer arrived and we probably had as much rain as you did. Never mind, enthusiasm remains high.

  4. Hello Alistair, that geranium looks amazing, especially since most other plants are fading. We don’t have geraniums in the garden but there are gaps in the borders where I can see that a geranium or two would fit perfectly. This one is definitely for the shopping list.

  5. I enjoy it when people find out things by their own experience rather than by looking them up on line alone. It’s more dynamic. And in my own life, I gain a great deal of joy from discovering for the first time masses of things which millions of people have already known for hundreds, if not thousands of years.

  6. I don’t have ‘Patricia’ but ‘Rozanne’ blooms longer than any other plant I grow. It’s still going strong in my garden despite our extreme summer weather. I suspect the compost you gave your little beauty, was instrumental in extending it’s bloom time. I’m not a new gardener, Alistair, but you always inspire me! P. x
