In Peter Abbot's excellent book "Guide to Scented Geraniaceae", he says that
Grey Lady Plymouth is fairly tall and erect, leaves greyish-green with thin
cream edge. Rose scented. Lady Plymouth is described as having a compact,
neat habit. Leaves grey-green, edged cream. Previously this plant had a
distinct rose scent, but is now becoming much more like that of peppermint.
Hope this helps.

Hi Maria and All,
Quite accidentally I have run across an article by Faye Brawner entitled
Rose and Her Relatives on page 9 of the Autumn 1997 Geraniums Around The
World. I don't have time to condense the information now, but if someone
else could for the Robin it would be beneficial. There appears to be a
great series on the scenteds in GATWs around this one.

Grey Lady Plymouth has white or silvery edges to the leaves while Lady
Plymouth is plain green. While not generally a fan of variegation I find
Grey L. P. more interesting, it has a greyish all-over appearance.
G.L.P. is in the rose-scented group; is this what is meant by Silver Leaf
Rose? I forgot the original posting.
