Variegated Geraniums on balcony 2018

I’ve planted out lots of variegated Geraniums on the balcony for this summer this year. I have two forms that are named & one I don’t. One is a very dark leaved one, like chocolate, called ‘Black Prince’. I was sent a cutting from a man in Scotland who used to be a member of another gardening forum I write on. I sent him an Amaryllis bulb in return. It has lovely light pink flowers held up on very long stems. I’d taken & rooted lots of cuttings &, together with a couple of last years’ plants, I put them in one of the troughs on the balcony floor. I also put some plants from last year in a smaller trough on the balcony railings.

I also have many plants of ‘Vancouver Centennial’. I bought the original plant in a supermarket on a whim because I liked it so much. I don’t normally buy things on whim but this time I did as I thought if I wait for a day or two they will all have gone! This has variegated green & red leaves but the leaves are very “star” shaped. The flowers are a very bright red & the petals look like red diamonds! I’d taken & rooted lots of cuttings &, together with a couple of last years’ plants, I put them in one of the troughs on the balcony floor. I also put some plants from last year in a smaller trough on the balcony railings.

This last Geranium, whose name I don’t know, is green & white (or cream). This was bought at the same time as ‘Vancouver Centennial, in the same supermarket. This plant has light pink flowers that look quite delicate but it is very floriferous & practically flowers non-stop!
