Perhaps unfairly I tend to prefer plants with a shorter flowering season as they seem more “special” I grow so much in pots so I can move the star performers into prime position as they reach perfection. Give me a poppy or an iris or a beautiful blowsy peony any day! This is also why I loathe conifers. So boring! But of course if we all liked the same things there wouldn’t be enough to go around would there?
@Fairygirl they can be a nightmare to water but they do provide an interesting way to ring the changes!
They're like G. Anne Folkard and Anne Thompson in their habit, they continually flower and extend their growth throughout the season, either treat them as a scrambler through other things or hack them back periodically. If you understand their habit, it's not a 'bad' habit. I can't think of anything else that wants to flower so prolifically for so long. There are 'choicer' geraniums, but generally they only give you a few weeks of flower.
