The geranium season is just around the corner. Now is the time to plan your pairings so you can launch an effective search for the right ingredients. You may be asking, wshat pairs well with geraniums?
For a more formal look, I suggest a glazed pot or a more ornate concrete urn. Bacopa is an excellent choice to pair with a white or red geranium for a formal appearance. An all-white container is best placed in an area where evening viewing is prominent. The evening light highlights the contrast between the blooms and foliage. The variegated foliage and the flowing texture of the spider plant add a complementary contrast to your container and a touch of elegance for an all-white mix. However, the spider plant does not fare well in full sun. If you are looking for something with a draping habit, to trail over the sides of your pot, asparagus fern or vinca major are two very solid choices.
In today's world, salmon-colored geraniums are growing in popularity. However, pairing them for workable contrast can be a bit challenging. Surprisingly enough, these shades pair well with bright yellows, dark blue, purple, and dark pinks. Wave petunias, calibrachoa, vinca, dichondra, dusty miller, are some of the most popular choices available.
Now that you have your information, it's time to find the perfect geranium. You are on your way to achieving the mixed container of your dreams.
