The paper brings some data about 11 years of the primary introduction researches of 5 Geranium L. species. Information about its over-wintering, terms and duration of blossoming in a forest-steppe zone of the Altai region is expounded. The relationship of the cultivars’ blossoming terms with the established weather conditions of the vegetation period in the research years is analyzed. Certain promising species were selected and can be used in landscape gardening of the region. It is established that the studied species have the greatest blossoming productivity in the first years of flowering which decreases with aging of plants.
