Geranium Update for New Glarus' 175th Celebration


May 7, 2020

At this time, plans for the 175th Celebration are still underway. It is hoped that by the end of July the current situation will have eased and we can safely observe this major milestone in New Glarus's history.

The warm temperatures have encouraged everyone to work on their yards and gardens. So the timing is perfect for the arrival of the Ivy Geraniums at Brenda's Blumenladen this week. Months ago, a few of us had the idea to decorate our village with the traditional Ivy Geranium. This type of geranium is the typical flower for window boxes, planters and flower pots in Switzerland. Brenda and her crew will be using the Ivy Geraniums in the flower pots in downtown New Glarus as well as many of the window boxes around town.

The "Geranium Committee" encourages everyone to use this type of flowering plant for home use as well. There are many colors available. Brenda and her staff can help you choose other plants to companion with the trailing geraniums. The Blumenladen is planning to hold a virtual class on the use and planting. Watch for that!!

Let's all enjoy the warm weather and planting season as we stay at home. Look forward to a fun celebration here in our hometown the end of July. Presenting a beautiful village to our Swiss visitors and all the visitors is what we do every year. Let's make it just a little more "Swiss" this year.
