Americana Violet Ice Zonal Geranium Care
Plant Pelargonium Americana Violet Ice in fertile, well-drained garden soils. It is drought tolerant once established. If using the plant in a container, make sure the pot has a drainage hole to avoid water logging its roots. Deadhead this geranium to prolong its flowering period and to encourage more blooms. Fertilize container gardens monthly with a balanced blend as directed on the package. Zonal geraniums are heat tolerant.
This plant is typically grown as an annual, but it is hardy in zones 9 to 11. It may survive indoors for use as a houseplant in full sun conditions. With proper care, it can live for many years indoors.
Americana Violet Ice Zonal Geranium Spacing
Space individual plants 14 to 16 inches apart, center on center, in your garden. They may be spaced 6 to 8 inches apart from each other and other plants in a container. The violet flowers will look great in groups or paired with bright colors or pastels.
