Jess is in the Garden

They are 2, planted in a SE facing container where they have happily grown before.

Free-draining.

Not overwatered.

Flowering like mad since last week, but many of the usually green leaves have turned orange/red.

What's going on?!

Not dyingor diseased, I hope...

It is quite natural for many species of geranium to develop red leaves and is nothing to worry about.

thanks punk - had no idea! early days for me growing hardy geraniums - thought it might be that sun was too hot that side.

punkdoc's right- most geraniums I've had showed red leaves at some point.

really? none of my hardy ones in the back garden have - only this pot at the front. weird. but thanks both for the reassurance!

They will do this especially if they get cold or a bit stressed - it can add to the colour of the whole show.  We have various types of hardy geraniums, some of these are more prone to reddening of the leaves than others - why?  Who knows!

Jess is in the Garden

I see - hopefully mine weren't stressed  but will watch them closely.

It's simply the season.  Many plants have shown signs of it this year red leaves just one aspect.  They will flower as usual a d will prob revert to their usual green foliage later in the summer

All part of the service......lol
