Re: Help please.
Thanks for the help. I will look there. Geranium 'Confetti is a selection
from the species, not a hybrid. We TC'ed a more white mottled clone from a
seed strain Dan Heims brought back from Japan. I have also seen a form which
is yellow/gold mottled coming out of England as a seed strain.
I do new product reseach for Terra Nova Nurseries; always looking for
unusual plants to sell or breed with to make something new. I search out
people who are finding/breeding better plants and work with them to bring
the best to wider markets.
If anyone has problems contacting Terra Nova, please email me. We have
suffered from a too strict anti-virus net nanny; making messages from new
sources disappear. Just cc to all of my email addresses and one will usually
get through. Failing that, fax or snail mail will work.
