|I come from New Zealand and have several plants of geranium Rozanne. It flowers for months on end and looks fantastic beside geranium Hollwood another long flowerer. I have no trouble purchasing plants although a bit expensive. NZ $20.00. I have also had success in taking small divisions from my parent plant in early Spring. I take them from the edge of the plant, and cut them off and down with a very sharp knife. Rozanne is sterile so does not set seed. Pippi, I do not know what seeds you have got, maybe Johnstons Blue which is similar but smaller than Rozanne.|

|I notice that you are addressing Pippi. I checked to find a post about Rozanne...Pippi posted (quite a long time ago) about Rozanne here:

|Hi mysticmerlin and welcome to NGA!
I've been using a technique for circumventing the 'self sterile' problem by microwaving pollen. It's worked out very well for me and the seeds produced are viable. Here is a link to a thread about it.

If you try it and are successful please let me know! I'm starting a list of plants this technique works on.
