This is one of an american bred series of Unique pelargoniums.
It certainly hits you in the eye

I just got that book too, as well as Faye Brawner's very good, but mistitled 'Geraniums - the Complete Encyclopedia'

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHH! Why not call a Pelargonium a Pelargonium?
There's not a single geranium in the book that I can find
The only references are a rather lame explanation of why she's misnamed the book. Why not educate people instead of perpetuating the confusion?????!!!!!!

Apart from that, I like her book very much LOL

quite a shame too seeing as how she is one of the main 'authorities' on Pelargoniums in the USA.
