The UPGMA news release said this about the presentation: “Not to be confused with the bright red hothouse so-called ‘geraniums’ often sold in springtime hanging baskets, a great many perennial geraniums are hardy in the Upper Peninsula. Plant hybridizers continue to create beautiful hybrid varieties that offer stunning visual impact in the landscape.
