Regal A common pelargonium in gardens around San Francisco Bay. We have given it the tentative name of 'Maricruz', but please let us know if you know its real name. (Cynthia Pardoe tells us that is is the "spitting image' of 'Marie Rober', but 'Marie Rober' is described as purple magenta with a dark blotch on all petals - is it the same - we don't know!) It has glowing light purple outer petals with large brown to purple blotches on the inner part of the petals

Plant of the Month


Monsonia speciosa


This is an unusual member of the Geranium Family. The leaf lobes are very fine and narrow, and the flowers look like white tissue paper with notched margins and a pink central blotch. The anthers are orange. The plant grows in the winter and flowers in the spring. It must be allowed to go dormant during the summer. At that time all water should be withheld. It does well in a container, but should be protected from temperatures below freezing in the winter. It can be propagated from root cuttings or seeds. The roots are bright yellow and semi fibrous. It comes from the winter rainfall areas of the Western Cape of South Africa and grows in sandy loam.
