Geraniums Are Beloved by Gardeners Why do gardeners love geraniums so much? Here are three excellent reasons to invest in this set of two geraniums: Fast spreading: Besides the obvious fact--their inherent beauty--they are quick spreaders because they spread through an underground shoot as well as self-seed. This rapid growth allows gardeners in almost every USDA growing zone to fill entire beds with color relatively quickly. Attracting pollinators: Geraniums are fantastic in a pollinator garden. Their bright hues attract colorful butterflies, hummingbirds, and bumblebees. These species help ensure a healthy ecosystem. A low-care plant: Geraniums don't demand much care. They are happy in partial- to full sun, with occasional fertilizing and minimal water during dry spells. They are drought-tolerant; they will return to life after the first refreshing rainfall if a heat wave leaves them frazzled. Geranium maculatum Has a Lovely Appearance. In optimized growing conditions, geraniums can reach almost two feet at maturity--a very nice size for a garden border or in a sunny garden bed. The leaves and stems of geranium maculatum are rich and dark green. They create pretty foliage that perfectly sets off the rich jewel-toned flowers. Each bloom has five gently rounded petals measuring one to two inches. Each petal has a small lift that lends a shallow cup shape to the flower. The colors are generally rich pink, purple, or lavender. However, white or blush pink flowers may also occur.

They also require soil that drains well and organic woody materials as a planting medium. Yellow trillium is a hardy plant. It's disease-resistant, pest-resistant, and drought-resistant. Usually, average rainfall totals provide enough moisture; however, you may need to assist with watering during a dry spell. TN Nursery customers often order yellow trillium plants to brighten up a rock garden or natural area or as a border planting in a shade garden. It is certainly versatile enough to use almost anywhere shaded. The Cheerful Yellow Trillium Blooms at the Perfect Time Every Spring Yellow trillium will wake up for the winter in the earliest days of spring, begin to unfurl its stems and leaves for the season, and blossom in mid-spring. The timing is ideal--it often appears after the early flowering bulbs end, but the summer perennials have not yet awakened. The yellow trillium stem grows from a robust root system. The deep-green single stem grows to about seven inches. Whorls of broad oval leaves emerge in a pleasant silvery green color from the stem. The mottled leaves have gold shading that adds charm and visual interest. The trillium name comes from the gorgeous flower, which opens to display three slender and elegant petals in a beautiful lemon to a bright yellow hue. The flowers bear cute little berries. Although the fruit is inedible to humans, your backyard critters--small animals and birds--will enjoy the feast.
