|I had a Vancouver Centennial a couple of years ago. It had pretty leaves, tons of flowers, and really did well for me. I'd like to get another of those for this year.
I also had a Mrs. Cox, that had really pretty tri color leaves that I'd like to find again.

|I love all of them.|
When I lived in England I had a small greenhouse that housed 145 pellies, most miniature and dwarf ones. England is a great place for pellies and hardy geraniums. There are many nurseries around and the collections are gigantic!!!
Here in the US I can hardly find any. I know of two good nurseries inCanada and here there is Hobbs.
I love Mr Wren and I also love the baby birds eggs pellies.

|For anybody in Canada, there is a big show in August at the Toronto Botanical Gardens. Many varieties to see in the show, and many for sale too. I know I will have Vancouver Centennial, and maybe Mr Cox and Mr Wren too. Mr Wren is really odd with it's edged blooms, and Mr Cox screams colours. It likes morning sun I find though, and Mr Cox needs pruning to hold a shape.|

|Mr. Wren is really pretty, I've never seen it, but had to look it up. I didn't realize that my Mrs. Cox was really a mis-named Mr. Cox, and there isn't a Mrs. Cox (Just found that out when looking up Mr. Cox). Anyway, I loved that one, and would love to find another. There are very few nurseries around here that sell anything unusual. I did pick up a Wilhelm Langguth. I'll post a photo when I get a chance. |
I'd bet that show in Toronto would be fabulous. If anyone goes, please post photos!!
