At the 2011 Annual Plant Sale of the Canadian Geranium and Pelargonium Society was a great pleasure to admire the vivid colors of the blooming pelargoniums and geraniums.
One of the most pleasant "tasks" of the show was to prepare, three weeks before, one miniature garden in a bonsai pot for our hourly door prize with a regal pelargonium with a lot of flower buds. (as we told you last month in our article 2011 plant sale of canadian and geranium society. ) Unfortunately its flower buds still waiting to bloom (was such a cold weather here in Vancouver this spring) so last week we decide to bring other miniature garden with a blooming red geranium for the hourly raffle prizes. The plant is an "Eric Hoskins" zonal pelargonium- hortorum with dark zoned leaf and tuft red flowers which will bloom all the summer.
The first drawn winner of the raffle tickets was really happy to take home the "mini-garden prize"... and to take care of it for long time. Congratulations !!!
As every year, The Annual Plant Sale and Show of the Canadian Geranium and Pelargonium Society was a great opportunity for all the participants and visitors to see a wide variety of common or unique pelargoniums and geraniums, and to add some of them to their collections.
It is hard to compile a list of the geraniums and pelargoniums varieties existing at the show... for sure many of them I feel have been breakthroughs, plants uniques, plants you absolutely must have, plants that made the genus better due to their succeeding selection, plants with subtle or pungent scents: apple, cider, cinnamon, nutmeg, rose, lemon, fruity, old spice...
I wish you were there to see and smell them... It has been an unforgettable experience.
