Re: [IGSROBIN] Creamery & zonartics

Hi Ingrid,

Cliff Blackman did send some Zonartic seed to the Geraniaceae Group seed
bank about 1992.  It was distributed amongst a number of members and there
may be plants from that seed being grown by GG members.  This seed however
was not from a yellow taxon and all of its offspring have been in shades of
pink/light red.  Cliff found that he had to have about 70% articulatum in a
cultivar to obtain the yellow colouring.  The seed that was distributed only
contained about 40% as I understand.
Some very nice yellow and bi-colour Zonartics do exist but for goodness only
knows reason have not been cultivated and sold.  Those of us who have seen
these cultivars have been waiting for some years now to buy plants.  It
seems to me that Cliff has been given the 'run-around' by certain overseas
companies who are controlling the release of these plants.
I regard Cliff as a good friend but I have not been able to obtain
seed,cuttings or plants from him as he honours his agreements with these
Regards Alby,
Geraniaceae Is All Around The World,
