Thanks for straightening me out about Dulcie. I obviously made an error (or
copied somebody else's error). Do you like the variety?
That is very interesting about Baby Brocade sporting to a "redder" version.
Does anyone know whether the regular standard Brocade does the same? I
received a plant so-labeled from a source I consider reliable, but when it
bloomed it had far more red in the petals than I expected or remembered from
growing the variety years ago. (A picture labeled Brocade at the Swedish
Pelargonium Site http://www.pelargonsallskapet.com/bildgalleriet2.htm shows
somewhat the same condition.) Knowing that white-centered red cultivars can
vary with growing conditions, I didn't write off my specimen plant, but if this
sport occurs, that could account for it.
