The regal geranium (Pelargonium domesticum), also called the Martha Washington geranium, is traditionally used as a seasonal indoor flowering plant. It also makes an attractive display in a container on a porch or patio. Considered a fancy leaf geranium, the regal has predominately green, but may also have variegated, green and white foliage. This native of South Africa can bloom for well over 30 years when showered with tender loving care.
Keep the soil moist, but not wet, allowing the top 1 inch of soil to dry out slightly before watering again. You may need to water outdoor plants more often, depending on the climate. Place indoor plants in direct morning sunlight, for at least four to six hours a day, avoiding hot afternoon sun, which may burn the tender leaves. Place outdoor plants where they will get full morning sun and afternoon shade.
