Our annual end-of-summer contest is here, come on down to the Dave's Garden County Fair!

What plant? Red flowers and forked leaves.

Copenhagen, Denmark

The plant has red flowers and seems to loose its leaves when it flowers. I would like to know what the name of the plant is, so I can read how to get it to flower. It has flowered while I have had it, but its been years.

Pelargonium acerifolium?

Copenhagen, Denmark

Hmm, I donīt think that is it. It is all woody except for the leaves!

Bristol, United Kingdom

pelargoniums with age, do get a woody base.

Copenhagen, Denmark

The flowers are much smaller and forms on the stem of the plant.

Madison, WI

Could it be a Jatropha?

Copenhagen, Denmark

I don't think it looks like a Jatropha when I google it. As I remember it, it is from New Zealand!
