Geranium- my all time fave plant in my garden

Geraniums are so easy to grow. I have known these flowers since my childhood days in Baguio because of their attractive petals, five in all for the standard plant. I used to 'paste' the petals on my little fingernails and they look like nailpolish.

They are easily grown from cuttings, low maintenance, disease and pest resistant and they seem to flourish with flowers all the year round.

My small collection includes those that produce white, red-orange, deep read and pink flowers. They also have a scent, which I don't particularly dislike. Their foliage are nice rounded type sometimes with a tinge of a dark green around it. With or without flowers they do look attractive.
