Pelargoniums Fancy Leaf

The brilliantly colored leaves of these zonal pelargoniums provided "bedding-out" color in 19th public gardens and have been the delight of collectors ever since. There are some quite old varieties still in existence but it has been a cause for concern that only a very few are still sold in nurseries. We would like individuals and garden clubs to grow these beautiful plants so we might preserve them through this century.

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.
