Re: Hum..Now tours
I love geraniums so I took a look at your Summer Skies; Plants Magazine
covered it back in 1996, said this:
"...a wonderful looking Geranium pratense 'Summer Skies' (pictured) which
is fully double and sky blue. This appears to be a little difficult to
propagate in large numbers..."
The picture can be seen at:
It is quite lovely; let me know if you locate a source for this one.
Although I tend to have difficulty with pratense cultivars, I might give
them another shot as pretty as this one is.
