Behind the Breeding

While selecting Pelargoniums in the field, I am always impressed by the heat performance and flower power of interspecific Pelargoniums. Being from Europe myself, I am used to seeing traditional trailing Pelargoniums being planted everywhere. Caldera ™ is the product of an idea to make available the traditional feel of a cascade Pelargonium for the heat. Caldera ™ is a true interspecific

semi-trailing Pelargonium, which combines the heat performance of Caliente ™ with the traditional feel of an ivy- leaf cascading trailing Pelargonium. The uniquely strong steel blue-green foliage provides a contrasting backdrop to rich colored self-cleaning umbels. I am delighted to see that this idea worked out.
