Variegated Plant on 2002 Catalogue Cover
Answered by: Conrad Richter
Question from: Maria Clauser
Posted on: February 18, 2002

Thank you for sending my catalogue. I will be placing an order as soon as I get some info from you... your help would be appreciated.

On the front cover of your catalogue, there are some variegated leaves over the ELECAMPANE flower. I have looked through the book and could not find the same type of plant. Any info on this plant?

Oh... by the way, out of the dozen of seed catalogues I received from the other companies, yours was by far, the best for what I am looking for.

Look forward to hearing from you.

The plant is variegated mint-rose scented geranium. You can find it described in the geranium section on pages 22-23 of the 2002 printed catalogue or in the online catalogue under "Herbs G".

Variegated mint-rose geranium is a beautiful variety: it is compact, has neatly variegated foliage unlike "messier" variegated plants, and the variegations persist through the summer unlike many variegated plants. The scent is a refreshing and surprisingly pleasing mint-rose combination as suggested by its name.
