Well, I googled it and it doesn't seem to be available anywhere, so we'll have to hope that plantaholic is good at taking cuttings, or can you tell us where you got it PA? ;)

I grew the plant from seed it took 14 months to flower.
I belong to the Geraniaceae group, we have an annual seed exchange thats where the seed came from.

I really love the ivy-leaved vars and the scented leaved vars, but I don't have much room indoors for growing them. At the moment I have just two lovely ivy leaved ones that are thriving in the conservatory. I have had lots of the scented leaved ones in the past, but they tend to get too big for indoors don't they! Perhaps you know of some smaller ones for me.....

My favourite small scented vars, are
P.dichondrifolium which has small grey-green lavender scented leaves and small white flowers featherer red.
Creamy nutmeg has small cream and green leaves with a pine scent not nutmeg as the name suggests, it too has small white flowers.
Lady Scarborough which is a bit larger but quite upright and easily trimmed to shape it has small green leaves with a sort of citrusy strawberry scent (everyone smells them differently). The flowers are a little larger than the other two and pink.

Brilliant, thank you. I shall go on to the website you suggested earlier and look for them. :)) I do love the scented leaved ones! Putting this on faves for reference!
