|I purchased some typical red geraniums from my local home improvement store and planted them in planters on my deck. They originally had green leaves. However, now the leaves have turned red, like that of a begonia. The plant seems healthy otherwise. Is this normal?

|Reddish tinted leaves is a perfectly normal reaction to the cold spring weather we've been having. As soon as temperatures warm up, your plant will produce (and keep) nice green leaves.
