Re: [IGSROBIN] Geranium Books

recent botanical work on the genus Pelargonium is outstanding.

of gardening books - with a book on geraniums on the way: 1000 Pelargoniums
by Hazel Key should be out in the UK in June and in the USA in July - it
has 1000 colour pictures! But what specific group of geraniums still need
coverage - apart from Angels? Coloured-leaved types perhaps?
