The San Diego Geranium Society was established in 1972 to promote interests in growing and showing Geraniums and Pelargoniums. We share information and cuttings of the plants that we enjoy.

Lovely Regal Pelargonium Named for Centennial
2015 is the Year of the Geranium. Balboa Park will celebrate the Centennial of the 1915 San Diego Exposition and World's Fair in the Park. Many of the buildings here were originally built for this event and have been upgraded and preserved as cultural treasures of the region. The gardens of Balboa Park have equal importance to our citizens as horticultural treasures.
Geraniums have a starring role in many gardens and are featured in many areas of the Park. There will be displays of many kinds of geraniums at the Botanical Foundation's Garden Party on May 9. The displays will also be shown at the San Diego Geranium Society Show and Sale on May 16 and 17. Remember: Geraniums and Pelargoniums are in the same family and both are known by the family name of Geranium!
Don't miss these upcoming opportunities to increase your knowledge of geraniums.
