Geranium 'Pinto Premium White to Rose' F1
2013 AAS Bedding Plant Award Winner

This addition to the 'Pinto Premium' series is a must-have! Not only is the flower coloration unique and ombre-like, but the numerous 5-inch blooms are long-lasting in the garden. Petals start out white then deepen to rose-pink as flowers mature, giving an attractive bicolor effect. Dense, well-branched plants sport deep green leaves with darker zones that contrast beautifully with the light colored flowers. 'Pinto Premium White to Rose' is a great choice for carefree, colorful summer garden beds or patio containers. 'Pinto Premium White to Rose' F1 is also a recipient of Europe's FleuroSelect Gold Medal award for garden performance.

How to Grow

Plant 12 to 18 inches apart in well drained soil after the last frost date in your area. Grow in full sun and keep soil evenly moist. Geraniums are carefree but benefit from regular fertilizing. Apply a water-soluble fertilizer every other week for best performance, especially when planted in containers. Removing spent blooms on 'Pinto Premium' Geraniums is not necessary, as new flowers will quickly cover over the old. However, if you wish to remove the old flowers, they should be snapped off cleanly, by hand, at the base of the flower stem, where it joins the plant.
