Zonal Geraniums are known for their large vibrant lollipop blooms. They are popular plants for both gardens and containers. With its bold color palate and cluster design, zonal geraniums are certainly an eye-catching gem in either a garden environment or all on its own. Cooler weather often brings out reddish ring patterns in the foliage commonly referred to as ‘zones’ hence the name ‘zonal’.

Zonal Geraniums are the preferred choice of geraniums for many gardeners for their brighter colors, darker foliage, and larger blooms. They do very well in containers, window boxes and landscapes. Zonals need evenly moist soil and grow best with regular applications of fertilizer. To keep them looking their best, remove old blooms and yellow leaves as needed.

We produce Zonal Geraniums in three sizes – #4.5 Premium, #6 Premium and #10 Hanging Baskets.
