Overwintering Geraniums

I remember spotting white geraniums on Scandinavian blogs in the dead of winter. It was a mystery… where does one source such a thing?

Then, last fall my brain caught up with Pinterest and I realized that with a little trimming of the roots and branches I could have my white geraniums too. We have five flowering on and off, they are very easy going.

This enormous scented geranium is giving me pause. The leaves were previously variegated green/black but no longer. The little pink flowers have ceased and I am not fond of the scent to be honest but the shape is so pleasing…

It sits in a corner of my tiny office and I am not sure we will be able to make it work all winter. This plant has a bit of a “presence”!
