Hello. Thanks for reading this.

I live in northern Illinois (Zone 5A ). Last fall I planted some ostrich ferns, astilbes, hostas, heucheras, lamium, and geraniums (macrorrhiza) in an area of partial shade with about 4-5 hours of sun daily. The leaves on the geraniums are turning yellow. All of the other plants are doing very well. We have had record rainfall this month. The soil has gotten very wet but drains well. Is there anything that I can do?
Thanks again. Stay healthy.

One of the most common causes for yellowing leaves is too much moisture or too much rain. Geraniums are very sensitive to excess rain and will turn yellow. Thats why its a good choice to plant the Geraniums after the spring rains are over or almost over. Now would be a good time to plant some new Geraniums to beat the excess water. Thanks for sharing.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

I've never known geraniums to be sensitive to too much rain. Maybe @oneeyeluke is thinking of pelargoniums.

Can you post photos of your Cranesbill (Geranium macrorrhizum) ?
