Family

Geraniaceae

Botanical Name

PELARGONIUM 'Vancouver Centennial'

Plant Common Name

Vancouver Centennial Geranium, Zonal Geranium

General Description

The variegated gold and bronze foliage and clusters of brilliant orange-red, star-shaped flowers of 'Vancouver Centennial' really stand out in a container or sunny flower garden. It is no wonder that this tender perennial is so widely sold and planted.

Vigorous and easy to grow, it prefers full to part sun and average to fertile soil that drains well. Most hybrids, like 'Vancouver Centennial', are everblooming and appreciate regular deadheading. Enjoy this fine bedding plant in mixed beds and borders, containers or hanging baskets. In temperate climates this geranium can be brought indoors to overwinter.
