A Red Pelargonium and seedlings update

P. Redondo

I've had this plant a long time; it's bright double red flowers always cheer me up.  It is a dwarf growing pelargonium with very dark green foliage. It was introduced in America in 1965, apparently from seed sent there by Frank Read of Norfolk, U.K. to a Mrs James Lumsden of Redondo Beach, California.    I have some lovely memories of a short visit I made to Redondo Beach a few years ago.

You may remember the seedlings Sue found when we tidied up her pelargoniums in France about a month ago.  She brought them back to the U.K. and here is a photo of them now that she has potted them up individually.
