Spring Geraniums: Order Now
Time to order Spring Geraniums. Since adequate timing is needed for ordering and growing, be sure to get your orders in ASAP. New varieties for 2024 are here and ready!
For a sneak peak on what’s new, see the latest video from Ball FloraPlant Territory Manager Maria Bolinger. Here, she shows off two new colors in the Galaxy Zonal Geranium series. Dark Red Improved offers a darker red color and flowers that resist shattering. Raspberry Sizzle, a new variety, features large, striking maroon-red blooms.
With direct-stick callused cuttings from Ball FloraPlant, you’ll get Genesis™ cuttings. Less labor, shortened crop time, less shrink, reduced input cost, better branching and more flowers, and no propagation required. They are grown at the unrooted cutting geranium farm, YecaFlora, located in Yecapixtla, Mexico. The farm offers excellent conditions for high-quality geranium production along with climate-controlled truck shipments to the border.
Other NEW Geranium varieties include:
Super Moon™ Compact Violet
Fantasia® Lavender Sizzle
Galaxy® Raspberry Sizzle
Moonlight™ Hot Coral
Sunrise™ Purple+Big Eye
