<- Euphorbia To Gazania  |  Varieties 2011 Home  |  Gerbera To Iberis ->

Geranium (Interspecific) Fusion Flame by Ecke/Oglevee
Fusion Flame was designed to give growers a fast-growing, early-to-flower geranium for use in baskets, combo planters and pots without requiring the use of PGRs and high energy costs from heating due to the speed of flowering.

Geranium (Ivy) ‘Atlantic Red’ by Dummen USA
With big flowers, early flowering and very good branching, Atlantic Red is the latest color in the series.

Geranium (Ivy) ‘Blizzard Red’ by Syngenta Flowers
‘Red’ is the sixth color in the Goldfisch Blizzard series. Vigorous plants have excellent branching, good heat tolerance and huge, self-cleaning single flowers.

Geranium (Ivy) ‘Colorcade Red Ice’ by Ball FloraPlant
‘Colorcade Red Ice’ is a big-impact flower with red and white flowers in a stable flower patterns. Bred to the ideal series specs, very dense and trailing with no single shoots.

‘Pacific White’ has big flowers that bloom early with good branching.

Geranium (Ivy) ‘Temprano Dark Red’ and ‘Temprano Pink’ by Syngenta Flowers
Two new colors are available for the Goldfisch Temprano series, which is early to bloom and produces very floriferous plants.

Geranium (Regal) Candy Flowers Series by Ball
Impressive color, including a unique bicolor, and floriferous, medium habit make Candy Flowers a standout. It blooms early and throughout the summer and can be grown cool for energy savings. Colors are Bright Red, Dark Red, Pink With Eye, Violet and Bicolor.

Geranium (Royal) Elegance in three colors by Ecke/Oglevee
Ideal for Easter and Mother’s day, the Elegance series produces full flowers in March through early summer and is self branching with durable foliage for shipping. Tissue-like flowers are available in a full range of colors, including Crystal Rose (pictured), Red Velvet and Sunrise.

Geranium (Zonal) ‘Allure Scarlet Improved’ by Ball FloraPlant
‘Allure Scarlet Improved’ is more floriferous with a more vibrant scarlet-red color. Foliage has more distinct zoning that holds well in low light conditions. White is also a new introduction this year.

Geranium (Zonal) Apache by Hem Genetics
New in the Apache geranium collection this year are two colors: Red and Violet (pictured). The series now features 13 colors, which reach a height of 10 to 12 inches in the garden.

Geranium (Zonal) ‘Designer Salmon Improved’ by Ball FloraPlant
‘Designer Salmon Improved’ is a more intense salmon color and resists fading. It features well-zoned foliage on round, full plants.

Geranium (Zonal) ‘Euro Coral Glow’ by Ecke/Oglevee
The Euro Collection is best suited for high-density production, featuring compact plants with traditional green goliage. It is a prolific bloomer and is early to flower.

Geranium (Zonal) ‘Fantasia Purple Sizzle’ by Ball FloraPlant
Purple Sizzle is a geranium color breakthrough—unique purple with dark red eye on very floriferous plants. Reacts to PGRs more than others in the series.

Geranium (Zonal) ‘Fidelity Deep Lavender’ by Syngenta Flowers
‘Deep Lavender’ is the latest color in the Goldfisch Fidelity series. Fidelity has a naturally compact habit for higher density production and easier shipping. Plants are well branched with a smaller leaf size and early blooms, requiring little-to-no growth regulation. Flowers are resistant to shattering.

Geranium (Zonal) Moonlight Pink by Selecta First Class
The first true pink, Moonlight Pink is a dark green-leafed series ideal for 4.5- to 6-inch programs. No pinching is necessary to produce well-branched plants with early, large flowers.

Geranium (Zonal) Savannah Ruby Sizzle and Merlot Sizzle by Dummen USA
The Savannah series features dark foliage, medium vigor and attractive flowers and colors.

Geranium (Zonal) ‘Summer Idols Purple’ by Fides
Purple joins the Summer Idols series, which already contains 10 other pelargoniums.

Geranium (Zonal) ‘Sunrise White’ by Selecta First Class
A clear white color is now available in the Sunrise series. This medium green-leafed series offers large flowers, medium vigor, free branching and excellent garden performance.

Geranium (Zonal) Sunrise XL Series by Selecta First Class
The new Sunrise XL series combines the medium-high vigor varieties from the original Sunrise series plus two all-new colors to create the largest-sized geranium series from Selecta. Colors include XL Appleblossom, XL Brilliant White, XL Dark Salmon, XL Firestorm, XL Orange, XL Raspberry Eye, XL Rose, XL Strawberry Blush and XL True Red.

Geranium (Zonal) ‘Showcase Extreme Rose’ by Ball FloraPlant
‘Showcase Extreme Rose’ is a unique color with an eye-catching freckle. Showcase is a great quick-turn crop for pot-tight, late-season summer production.

Geranium (Zonal) ‘Tango White’ by Syngenta Flowers
Large, brightly colored flowers contrast nicely with dark green foliage in this Goldfisch geranium series, now with 17 colors. Medium vigor plants with sturdy root systems are well-behaved in the greenhouse and perform well in the garden.
