(Previous entries in the series — (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 11, and 12) This page (transcript follows image as in previous posts) again shows the durability of the general plant, but the fragility of the individual varieties. Almost none of the particular varieties listed on this catalog page are available for today’s gardener, but for the curious, you can find typical contemporary offerings of ivy geraniums here and coleus here, and the anyone interested in horticultural history can find a wealth of fascinating detail here.
