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 :)

LOL
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.
