  • Garden Performance
    Geraniums aren't just about big blooms. Exotic Leaf Geraniums enhance the garden with stunning foliage not found on regular leaf geraniums. These geraniums also bloom very well, you just don't get the big spectacular blooms found on regular Zonal Geraniums.

  • Growing Guide
    Treat the Exotic Leaf Geraniums just like your regular zonal geraniums: water only when completely dry, fertilize weekly, dead head as necessary.
