I have never seen seed for this plant. I believe they are grown from cuttings.

I've only seen it as plants too. From what I've read, it doesn't come true from seed. It sure is pretty!

A nursery by me has lots of interesting pels. Name is Jordan Nursery, Stanwood, WA. I have only visited the nursery to buy so have not seen their mail order first hand. They have Mr. Henry Cox.

It looks like it's available. Some places have it as "Mrs. Cox".

Hi Keith- Yah that's a really nice one! I looked at the Geranium/Pelargonium specialty nursery called Geraniaceae, they are sold out of that one for this year (was $6), but they have another one very similar, with showy orange-red flowers instead of the salmon-pink.

It's possible to get seed, offspring will be mixed colors though.

I grow the plant. Will let the blooms go see if I get seed. If I do they're yours.
