Alpine balcony geraniums are the Ultimate Geranium. Popular in Europe, these geraniums cascade heavily from window boxes and balconies. The Alpines' single blossoms create masses of color. They can survive the heat of summer when other plants often fail. These amazingly versatile geraniums also do well in partial shade and cooler temperatures.
Alpines are featured in a variety of colors and three growth habits: the long and trailing "Balcon," the full "Midcascade" and the compact "Mini". When planting any of them, use four or five Alpine plants for a 10" hanging basket and one plant every 6" in window boxes.
Balcons grow long and trailing (up to four feet in a season), so they need occasional pinching – one time when a stem reaches 10"-12" and throughout the season if any stems grow extra long. Visit our Geranium Care page for information on "pinching."
Mixed Balcons - Mix of scarlet, pink and lavender in one pack, each color identified.
With lighter green stems and ever-so-slightly variegated leaves, these Alpines are shorter-trailing (up to three feet.)
Their many branches give the "Mids" a nice, full shape.
Mid Casade Mix - Mix of red, pink and lavender in one pack, each color identified.
The "Minis" are more compact than the "Mids."
They create a low, branchy mound of color, trail moderately (to two feet) and are extremely prolific bloomers.
Mini Mix - Mix of red, pink and lavender in one pack, each color identified.
