Geraniums are tender annuals in your growing region. You can plant yours in a container a container and enjoy it outdoors, then take it back indoors over the winter months. Or you can plant it in your garden and consider it just a summer annual. Deer will eat geraniums so you might want to try using a repellant on the leaves. Enjoy your new plant!
