Helen of Toronto Gardens recent post on Fall colour on Geraniums, has brought out in me the dormant geraniaphile.
I love Geraniums, Pelargoniums and Erodiums, but I have taken them for granted lately and they have become wallpaper in my garden (horticulturally speaking). So even though it's late in the season, I decided to look at this group again.
My choice for outstanding Fall colour is Geranium sanguineum, this plant I grew from seed from package marked G.sanguineum 'mixed colours'. I got a number of plants from this source, and the colours certainly did vary, but very subtlety.
