Confusingly known as geraniums, pelargoniums are in the same plant family as hardy geraniums, but fall into a different genus and bear no resemblance to them at all. They are normally grown as annual bedding plants although they can be overwintered indoors, and are prized for their bright summer flowers and attractive, often fragrant, foliage.
Pelargonium capitatum is a shrubby, low-growing plant bearing rose-scented leaves and large pretty, pink flowers. For best results, feed Pelargonium capitatum with a high potash fertiliser during summer and deadhead spent blooms regularly. Bring plants indoors for winter.
