This is my one and only geranium that I rescued from a hardware store parking lot display almost 3 years ago (for 5 bucks I couldn't resist). I overwintered it last year with success, and again this year. I don't think it normally would be blooming at this point, but it had a vacation outside when we had those 2 weeks of 80-degree weather in mid-March, and this is what happened. All I did since last September is give it one cup of water a week.
due for a trimming and will go out into the garden again in mid-May. This is my third year for the one in the back, and first year for the one in the front. These, too, got one cup of water a week. This east-facing room is about 60 degrees all winter, and the plants seem to like it OK.
