Re: [IGSROBIN] Geraniums Chromosome number question & hybridizing
I am wondering if anyone has any information regarding the chromosome number
of some of the more common true Geraniums, especially pratense, sanguineum,
wallichianum, x cantabriense, macrorrhizum, monacense, x oxonianum, &
I have been making quite a few crosses this spring especially with G.
macrorrhizum as seed parent since this one is very adaptable in my garden.
Now that more are in bloom I will also start using x cantabriense 'Karmina'
as a seed parent, using larger flowered kinds such as pratense as pollen
If I knew the chromosome counts and had some idea of which species will cross
with which, I would be able to better concentrate my efforts.
