Geranium - Zonal Pelargonium zonale 'Americana Bright Red'

Geranium


Geranium Grower Tips:

Know your varieties and treat with PGRs accordingly. Splash types tend to be more compact than others. Early Florel sprays are key to making well-branched, quality plants. Use low-rate Bonzi drenches only on vigorous varieties. Watch for Botrytis under tight spacing and in combo plantings, especially when overhead irrigating. Monitor the media and try to keep the pH above 6.0 to avoid iron/manganese toxicity.

The go-to series for core volume focused programs.
Ideally suited for 2.5 quart pots, Americana's right balance of vigor and series uniformity makes it a great option for core geranium programs where growers need versatility and a wide range of color options.
Pair Americana's versatility with class-leading garden performance and you have an all-around geranium that works great for the grower and the end consumer.
