I've tryed to grow this Geranium without success.
There's any special hint for this one ?
All the others hardy geraniums and pelargoniums are very easy to propagate.
Could anyone help me ?
Thanks

I think I germinated mine (Samobar) in a damp paper towel. If I remember they spent some time in the fridge. I was using the peroxide method for a lot of seeds this spring too, so may have done that and it's worth a try anytime you're having difficulties. My few notes I kept say germinates under 41 degrees F. I have both the dark purple and the white in my gardens and they self seed a lot.

Babalu phaeum prefers a period of cold in order to germinate. You are best sowing the seed under a layer of sharp grit, watering well and putting in a cold frame outside over winter. Never let them dry out and they should germinate in the spring.

Echoes and Psilo - Thanks so much for your notes. The problem in Brazil is that we almost have no winter. We never have temperatures under 5 C. So, some seeds really have to spent some time in the fridge to simulate winter.
