Re: Question re Xylem

Hi Judith,

Thanks for your review.  I really appreciate it.  I agree that Wendy Read is really something.  I lost Orion in this move last summer but it is supposed to be a great one.

I love Holbrook, Ibiza, Tatoo and Deerwood Darling.  Have not had Pot Pourri and would love it if you would give a detailed description.

My East Sussex is blooming away, actually have three mother plants of that one since it is a slow grower.  I love the leaf and when it does bloom for you, you will love the stem color as well.

The Jackpot series are by Charles Rager formerly from the Central Coast Branch of IGS but who now lives in Saratoga.  I saw him again at a meeting of the Goldent Gate Geranium Society in San Francisco.  Bill Lemke spoke on species, with a marvelous digital presentation along with whole plants and/or leaves and flowers from may of his plants.

I have Rager's Pink, a small dwarf that is available around the world, and it is also a nice bloomer.

Are any of the plants you listed from this year's order?  I requested my orders for this year be sent in the fall as grandchild due any day, actually late.

Subject: Question re Xylem

I have read that systemic pesticides do not translocate to the flower par=
t. Is it because the xylem does not go into the flower? Or does it? Is=
it because flower parts are differentiated from the rest of the plant? =
All this came up because of the dreaded budworm and why systemics are not=
effective. I guess I mean systemics that are absorbed through the roots=
and not contact ones that might absorb into the flower part.

Hope someone can give me a lesson!
