Pelargonium ionidiflorum - Celery Scented Geranium

Pelargonium ionidiflorum the Celery Scented Geranium has been bumping around in specialty nurseries for years. Pelargonium ionidiflorum seems to have finally become more regularly available and for all of the right reasons. Pelargonium ionidiflorum is durable in dry gardens and cold hardy too. And Pelargonium ionidiflorum has an exeptionally long blooming season with hot pink flowers Spring through Fall. Pelargonium ionidiflorum is not invasive, I have yet to have seedlings and have had the Celery Scented Geranium in gardens for more than 20 years. Pelargonium ionidiflorum can bloom during any season, but peaks in Spring and Summer. Once established Pelargonium ionidiflorum has survived Southern California's recent droughts and heat waves without additional irrigation in inland valley locations. With a lean water diet soil type is not an issue. The Celery Scented Geranium still blooms even in light to moderate shade though it looks its best in a hot reflective light siting. Pelargonium ionidiflorum is native to South Africa. Pelargonium ionidiflorum has suffered little more than leaf reddening when temperatures dropped into the mid-teens°F. Pelargonium ionidiflorum grows about a foot tall and spreads slowly.
