Re: [IGSROBIN] Geranium arboreum

Rats, wouldn't you know it.  Alas about Hawaii.  Between the pigs, the
mongooses, and the rats the island has been devestated, I agree.

This is now a challenge, however:).  I will find a seed or two of arboreum
if I have to go to Maui to do it.  I have a few contacts in the islands who
are used to obtaining far more exotic substances than geranium seeds.  Maybe
they can be of help.

Thanks for the information.
