Re: [IGSROBIN] P. coriandrifolium?

G'day Joan'

As best I am able to figure, the decision about P.coriandrifolium depends
on what EXPERT you are talking to and what year it is.
Seriously the flower does look like a bigger, nicer myrrhifolium and the
foliage exactly the same.
How can it be Christmas without a Christmas tree????
Geraniaceae is all around the World
