Re: Celeste and Sharon Louise
If you will send me your land mail address I will forward your question to
the corresponding secretary of the IGS. She is a very knowledgeable person
who will be able to give you a better answer than I can about these
particular types of geraniums (or pelargoniums!) Brenda Archer

I am wondering if anyone in the past patronized The Geranium House, 1331
Tunnel Road, Santa Barbara, California, owned by Harriet Foster?
Someone brought me geraniums from her in about 1990 or 91. One is named
Celeste, and is a white, single dwarf. I cannot find a reference to it
in any book or any old catalog that I have and would love to find a
reference to see if it is correctly named. Does anyone know?
Also, I purchased Sharon Louise, a miniature, from P&J Greenhouses in
British Columbia. It is listed as a miniature, double white flower with
magenta edge by West. The only other place Sharon Louise is listed that
I can find is in Wendy and Ron Mitchell's listing without any
descriptions. The plant I received is double darker bright pink with
white eye. I was wondering if the description in P&J is incorrect or if
I have received the wrong plant. Would love to find a listing for this
Thirdly, does anyone know if there is an article on Brian West and his
Any information on any of the above would be greatly appreciated.
