Geraniums changing colour

Zone Bolton, Ontatio, Canada. (Just north of Toronto) | Dricci added on June 4, 2016 | Answered

Every year I buy baskets of geraniums for my Mother to enjoy on her balcony..she is 97 and loves the coral/salmon shade. This years baskets started out a deep coral but over the past two weeks have gradually faded to near white. The foliage remains green and healthy and new blooms plentiful but again are now almost white. She has enjoyed this same colour for about 20 years on the same balcony and in the exact same locations so no change there. Any idea why this may be occurring and is there any additive etc. That could restore the original colour? Thanks

Boytrytis blossom blight can develop in cool, damp conditions. This fungus can cause premature color fading and blossoms browning.

Make sure you are deadheading the spent flowers to keep the plant producing new flowers.
