Pelargoniums, or geraniums as they are often called, are superb for summer displays. With their origins from the Cape region of South Africa, these plants are used to dry conditions and will be forgiving if left to dry out occasionally during summer.

Pelargonium 'Voodoo' produces unusual light wine-red-coloured flowers embossed with purply-black markings. For best results grow Pelargonium 'Voodoo' in well-drained soil in full sun. There's little need to prune, but cut back faded leaves, flowers and old stems as they appear. In very mild areas of the UK pelargoniums will withstand winter outdoors, especially if planted in well-drained soil. In more northerly regions, grow pelargoniums in containers, which you can move indoors in autumn.
