A versatile plant that works well in containers, it is especially suited to a 2.5-quart pot. You can grow it in hanging baskets, window boxes, as well as in landscape borders.
Americana® Cherry Rose Zonal Geranium Care
Geraniums are low maintenance annuals. They do not require a lot of nutrients to grow satisfactorily and will not bloom well if over fertilized. Plant then in well-drained, fertile soil.
They require an average amount of water. Deadhead them regularly for best performance.
Americana® Cherry Rose Zonal Geranium Spacing
One plant in a 2.5-quart container is perfect. Space them 14-16 inches apart in the landscape.
