Climbing Geranium

Jazz asked 14 years ago

I’ve seen what I think is a geranium growing like clematis over a wall. Is there such a thing as a climbing geranium? And if so, what do I ask for at the garden centre and what care do they need? Cheers.

The ‘climbing geranium’ is correctly an ivy-leaved pelargonium, Pelargonium peltatum, which is normally used to trail from baskets and window boxes and dies in the frost.

But in a mild coastal area, it will survive on a wall and make quite a big climbing plant and can also be grown like this in a conservatory.
