I've just uploaded a web page with all my recent images http://www.marksgardenplants.com/pelargoniums.htm it's only small images for the time being
Pelargonium web site
What a stunning page!!
Mark strikes again LOL. That's a brilliant collection of photographs
and if you hold the cursor over the image it tells you what each pelargonium is
Yes, I did have the odd hover - there're a lot there I wasn't sure of, gotta lotta learnin' to do
sorry Mark, lovely photos but I am not converted! :(
I like all the Geraniaceae psilo and have Geraniums, Pelargoniums and Erodiums. I love them all in different ways.
....no Hypseocharis, Monsonia or Sarcocaulon yet, though I'm working on it [shame about Big Spikey Mark :( ]
I never cease to be amazed at the diversity just in a single family, enough here to satisfy most tastes I think :)
i like and grow some of the erodiums Philomel but I have never liked Pelargonium in any shape or form! :(
It would be a much poorer world if we were all the same :)
I must admit that the bedding zonals do not inspire me - but some of the other curiosities I find very attractive and I just love the smell of many of the ones with scented leaves (though by no means ALL)
Did you know that some of the south African hardy geraniums have a lemon scented smell just like some of the pelargoniums? must be something to do with the habitat in which they come from??
I'm with you phil - all those you mention and haven't got round to growing erodium yets but I will. Mark - one word, magnifica!!! I used to live very close to a breeder of Pelargoniums who showed at Chelsea. The sites and smells that greeted one upon entering her nursery were quite amazing. I forget her name but maybe could trace her via the town of Mildenhall in Suffolk.
