Re: Colorful Miniature Pelargoniums
I think Holbrook is one of the lovliest of all the small plants. Sorcery has nice leaves but shatters. My friend Donn from Sacramento had Flaming Katy and adored it. Unfortunately he lost it before I got a cutting. It was a real bloomer. Dame Anna Neagle is ok. I don't know the rest except Orion. Do you have a favorite little one?
The British websites are nice, with BPGS being exceptional will all those photos.
Kind regards and Happy New Year to you also.
