Trailing burgandy geranium wow !

blackmagicJuly 11, 2004

Hi everybody, i just got a big geranium. I collect all kinds of plants, when i saw the bloom color on this one i couldnt beleive it.They call it burgandy but it does not quite describe it.I wish I could show you a pic, except, I cant seem to figure out how to load it on gw.Also I am trying to start cuttings, but this one seems harder than usual geraniums to start.

I am assuming you are talking about a frost tender Pelargonium.
There are a few dark red pellies on the market, if you like this particular colour group look out for; Tom Cat/Boy; Merlot and Blackmagic. There is also a beautiful Regal Pelargonium 'Lord Bute'.
I think that Tom Cat and Tomboy are the same variety. I have not tried to root any of the pellies yet but I hope to do so in the autumn. One problem I have encountered with other trailing pellies is the long internodal lenghth and this can make it difficult to find good cutting material. Try using an ascorbic acid dip NOT rooting hormone and do not tent your cuttings.
