GERANIUMS have returned to fashion—largely because of striking new hybrid varieties that have recently been produced. These modern varieties have much enlarged flowers with individual florets up to two inches across borne in heads over six inches wide, in a glorious range of colours embracing whites, pinks, salmons, orange, reds, purples, and even chocolate shades. In England they have been used as a main feature in Buckingham Palace gardens; Beverley Nichols has written of them, while in America they have become nothing less than another colossal ail-American cult.
