Hi Pat,

Patricia is a tall plant (to 24") with leaves some what similar in shape to
Johnson's Blue only about 8 or 10 times bigger and maybe less divided.   I
can't tell you for sure what color the flowers are because it won't bloom
for another week or so but the picture on the label shows a flower color
similar to Ballerina but perhaps a little brighter/darker.

Glad you asked though because I went out to look at it and discovered some
aphids on Patricia that I need to take care of.

My question is for Terry and anyone else who can comment. You mention that
you have a geranium called "Patricia", and I wonder if you can describe it
for me. A couple of years ago when I bought my Johnson Blues, I also
purchased another geranium that looked exactly like the Johnson Blue,
except for the color of the flower, which was a pink. Otherwise, the plant
and the size and shape of the flower were the same. My Johnson Blues came
back the next year, but the pink variety did not, and since then I have
been unable in my area to buy replacements. When I purchased it, the pink
variety was marked "Patricia", but the Patricia's I find on the internet
all seem to have a larger flower. What I really want is a "Johnson Blue" in
pink. Any help on a source would be appreciated. I live in Maryland.
