Pelargoniums Uniques

This is a catch-all group of plants, some of which date back to the 1860s in the UK and others of which have been recently hybridized by Jay Kapac in Southern California. They are generally strong growers. The flowers can be small, but the plants are very floriferous. Not all in this group appear to be related to each other.

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.
