One of the most avid hobbies for many homeowners out there is that of gardening, and making sure that the outside of their home is as beautiful as they have made the inside. One of the plants that are often sought after is that of Geraniums, although they can be a bit tricky. Some people become concerned when they see red leaves on their Geraniums, but once you understand the reasoning for these oddly colored leaves, you know there is nothing to worry about.
- Geraniums are only hardy in U.S. hardiness zones 10 through 11, but they’re regularly grown as annuals in cooler climate regions.
- Red leaves on a geranium indicates that the plant is under some stress, potentially due to problems surrounding its feeding, watering, or temperature.
- Oftentimes, geraniums, which love warmth, get shocked by overly bracing cool nights, and the reaction will turn them red.
“Geraniums are generally low maintenance and easy to grow but, like any plant, they can experience some problems.”
