Xeric or succulent Pelargoniums fascinate me more and more. I recently bought more than 10 from Robin Parer at ... and here's in in-person acquisition: P carnosum obtained last week at the my club's Winter Show and Sale (SGVCSS, Los Angeles County, CA).

I love the texture and shape of this stem.

Yeah I want to try seed, but I give all the credit to the growers here: Barbara Hall, Tim Harvey, or Peter Walkowiak. (I don't remember which this was from right this second. I bought Pelargoniums from all three growers at the SGVCSS Winter Show and Sale.)

Pelargonium dasyphyllum
PS: I must be a child. The leaves remind me of big parsley.
