|I love the look of the tulip geranium. The flowers almost look like little rosebuds.|

|I like that tulip geranium.|
I have one which gives similar blooms in a pale pink.
The lady who gave it to me called it the Popcorn geranium, as the blooms do resemble popped corn somewhat.
These are heirlooms from back in the 1800s.

|The blooms do look much more like popcorn that tulips! Popcorn geranium makes more sense to me. I bet the pale pink is pretty, I wonder if they come in other colors, too. This is the only nursery I've ever seen these at, and this is the only color they carry.|

|Must keep an eye open for these!|
Apparently there are so many petals in each flower,
that they can not open so they stay curled in that tulip shape.

| If I remember correctly there are several shades of pink and maybe a red tulip type? But if you search for them look under tulip, not popcorn! They do partially open. |
Rosebud types come in pink, red, white, and pink and white, called appleblossom. I 'm just talking about the upright varieties, here. They are also becoming very hard to find!
Thirty years ago there were a lot more of the old fancy leaf types available than there are now.
I used to get a printed catalog from Shady Hills. I think things have changed since Chuck retired. They used to have lots of fancy leaf, tulip, Rosebud, and unusual type pellies.
