Canary and Madeiran Geranium differ greatly from their continental cousins in forming a broad rosette of strongly dissected leaves on slightly woody, short stems, eventually reaching up to 1m in height in the tallest member, Geranium maderense. Especially the latter is most floriferous and a highly ornamental species. All make good pot plants and should be grown under frost-free conditions as they are not reliably frost-hardy, except for the mildest areas in central and S Europe as well as southern UK and Ireland. For any humus rich, slightly moist, yet well drained soil. Keep at a minimum of some 5°C in winter in a sunny spot, in summer place pots in a fresh spot, preferably in partial shade. Plants are fast growing and reach flowering size within 2 to 3 years.
Sow seeds flat in any humus rich, well drained, yet slightly moist soil at 15°C to 20°C. Keep seedlings sunny in winter.
