Geranium is a genus of 422 species of flowering annual, biennial and perennial plants known commonly as cranesbills. They are found throughout temperate regions of the world and in eastern part of the Mediterranean region. The name ‘cranesbill’ is derived from their appearance of the fruit capsule of some species, which is shaped like a long unsprung column and like the bill of a crane. It is a diverse group containing types that grow in a range of conditions in full sun. They are easy to maintain and can multiply in numbers readily.
