Stellar Pelargonium "Faye Brawner"

The basic stellar "Faye Brawner"  has unusual white flowers speckled with pale pink, darker pink and purple, and is a cross between Bobberstone and Purple Star.  The leaves are green.

Brian West named this for the well known pelargonium plants woman Faye Brawner.  Faye herself has hybridised many pelargoniums, and is an avid collector of these lovely plants.  She has written two books on pelargoniums.  One is Scented Geraniums - Knowing, Growing and Enjoying Scented Pelargoniums, which she wrote with Jim Becker.  The other is Geraniums - the complete Encyclopaedia.  Both these books are well worth adding to you library.

  1. It's nice to have such beauty in containers in the garden. It's lovely. Yours.


I would love to hear your comments about my "ramblings".
