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.

Geranium phaeum 'Margaret Wilson'

Photo by Donn C. Reiners

This charming geranium for light shade comes originally from the UK where it was first introduced in 1989. It has pale green and very light creamy-yellow veined and splashed leaves and mid lavender flowers with a white eye. It forms a low mound about 12 x 18" when mature. It is very useful under shrubs and trees in the garden where it produced little splashes of artificial sunshine. It is cold hardy from USDA Zone 4-5 up to Zone 9.
