Pelargonium Americana Rosa Mega Splash (a zonal geranium) is a showy annual flower to fill summer containers or plant as border plants in hot landscapes. More commonly known as geraniums, Pelargonium flowers send up clusters of pink flowers with rose centers continuously in summer, and the ones on Americana Rosa Mega Splash reach 4 to 5 inches around. They really pop above the plant’s rich green, rounded leaves.
All gardeners have to do is deadhead the bloom clusters when they fade and the plant will continue to produce the stunning flowers. The upright plants reach nearly 16 inches high and around, so they stand alone in a container, serve as the thriller in a container arrangement, or work well as borders in the landscape. Although they do best with average watering, the plants can take periods of drought and summer heat.
Americana Rosa Mega Splash Zonal Geranium Care
Plant Pelargonium Americana Rosa Mega Splash in a container with soil that drains well. Be sure the plant gets at least 4 to 6 hours of sun a day for best flowering and growth. GIve the plant average water, but don’t worry too much if it has to go through a brief period of drought. The plants usually recover. Your pelargonium needs fertile soil, so occasional fertilizing can improve blooming.
Although grown as an annual in all but the hottest southern zones, your pelargonium can survive winters indoors. Give it plenty of sunshine and regular watering. In spring, prune the plant back to encourage full growth and work fresh compost into the top of the soil. Introduce it gradually to outdoor sun and wind when temperatures warm in late spring. You might have to repot the plant every few years if you keep it as a combination outdoor/indoor plant. Repotting gives the geranium new, fresh, and fertile soil and rejuvenates it.
Americana Rosa Mega Splash Zonal Geranium Spacing
In borders and mass plantings, space each pelargonium about 14 to 16 inches apart to give it plenty of room to grow. Use a container at least 10 inches around for a single plant, and use filler plants that grow no higher than 8 to 10 inches to show off Americana Rosa Mega Splash’s pink and red clusters.
