Do you hybridize? If so, what? >>
I haven't for years, because I don't have anyplace to keep geraniums
overwinter. But I would like to start again...interested in crossing fancy
leaf A Happy Thought and Pink Happy Thought with the gold leaves that have
red/rust centers. I used to use one of Miller's plants (good heavens, I
forgot the name!) but now have a new one...will have to go out and find the
name for you, sorry!
I just enjoy crossing fancy leaved geraniums. Never very many, but it is
such great fun to watch the first leaves come on and watch for color! I also
use fancy leaved geraniums in my classes when we talk about plastids and
organelles within the cell that have their own DNA...
