Re: RE: `Mr.Wren´

Something else distinctive about 'Mr. Wren' is that the flowers tend to
shatter if you are trying to transport it, which is why many growers don't
grow it for retail and why it isn't that common of a show plant.  There was a
lovely huge plant, around 3.5 feet tall at the South Bay Geranium Show last

Helen Van Pelt Wilson in The Joy of Geraniums (1946) says:

"Single light red with a brushed-on white edge, a charming novelty that O.N.
Conn of Carlsbad, California, obtained from the garden of a Mr. Wren; may be
a very old variety renamed; often reverts to an all-red single, and once, for
Holmes Miller, to an all-red double, Conn. 1952"

None of my other books contain more than a description of the flower.
