Roobos wholesale for flowers and plants: the beautiful French Geranium from kwekerij Apartus
The French Geranium is a home and garden plant also known as Pelargonium Grandiflorum. You only have to look at the magnificence of the flowers and the colors and you understand what this spring bloomer owes its second name to.
In England the French Geranium is called the Regal Pelargonium and in Germany the Edelgeranie. "Regal" means regal and "Noble" means nobility. 'French' in the Dutch name has a similar meaning in the sense that the plant has French grandeur. Grandeur means majestic, grand, beautiful, elegant. The greatness of the plant is reflected in the large, beautiful flowers (grandiflorum).
The French Geranium is a familiar sight in the nature of southern Africa. Around 1600, VOC ships from the Cape of Good Hope took the plant to Europe, where it scored high in various botanical gardens. With its southern background, it should come as no surprise that the French Geranium still likes to be outside when the frost has disappeared.
French geraniums belong to the Geraniaceae family, the pelargonium family. They occur in temperate to warm regions, especially in southern Africa. How did that family get its special name? The name Pelargonium is derived from the Greek pelargos which means stork. The top of the fruit has a narrow, beak-like shape.
You can recognize the French geranium by the large trumpet-shaped flowers with six petals that grow in clusters and the velvety, serrate leaves. The flowers radiate in one or more spectacular colors. Remarkable fact: not the flowers, but the leaves of French geraniums smell.
And we are proud to be able to supply the most beautiful French Geraniums from our grower Apartus
