Description / Maverick™ Orange Geranium Seeds

Oh, how we love the Maverick™ Orange Geranium. They are a southern gardener's salvation, thriving even in the sopping-wet humidity and searing heat of our summers. Other container plants look wilted even the same day you water them, but never Maverick™ Orange Geranium. It's compact, well-branched, large-flowered, and thoroughly agreeable to weather extremes. We wouldn't want anything less for our terracotta pots and white window boxes.

Maverick™ Orange Geranium is a very compact plant, reaching just 14 to 16 inches high (in full bloom) and nearly as wide. The foliage is large, softly lobed and creased, and bright green. Maverick™ Orange Geranium forms bushy rosettes beneath the flowering stems, which hold their giant spheres of blooms several inches above the rest of the plant.

And such blooms they are. The shade can only be described as fluorescent (perhaps they should have called these geraniums 'Highlighters'), the shape is beautifully rounded, and the color is pure orange, with just a dot of white at the base to get your attention. Maverick™ Orange Geraniums stand out down the street and practically around the corner, they're so bright. And they keep coming from the first whiff of hot June weather until the Halloween decorations go up.

Maverick™ Orange Geranium is an annual geranium, which is to say not a true geranium at all, but a pelargonium, known by some gardeners as cranesbills. If you live in a frost-free climate, though, you can probably overwinter them successfully. If you don't, bring your favorites in for winter and put them in a bright window. They'll live for years with this kind of treatment. (They're also easy to propagate. Pick up some rooting hormone at the nursery and dip the cut stems of a mature Maverick™ Orange Geranium into it, then plant them in a Whopper Bio Dome or small pot. They'll root like nobody's business.)

Geraniums are the essence of summer for many of us gardeners. Their very scent—a sort of garden-y aroma, not a floral but somewhat peppery and earthy—signals the arrival of summer. Nothing is more cheerful in pots marching up the porch steps or in window boxes leaning out over the garden. And they are a terrific bedding plant for full sun or light shade.

If you like Maverick™ Orange Geranium (and how could you not), we also offer Scarlet, as well as the formula mix of all the Maverick™ colors. Try them all, choose your favorites, and enjoy the bliss of growing annuals that love the hot summer weather as much as you do.
