Next Meeting May 12, 2016
Geraniums! Geraniums! Geraniums!
Southern California’s Mediterranean-like climate is perfect for raising geraniums and San Diego native Jim Zemcik is an internationally known geranium (pelargonium) breeder whose hybrids are available in Europe as well as North America. He will speak at our May 12 meeting and also bring along some of his plants for purchase, with the proceeds being donated back to the Assembly.
For those of you who think of geraniums as the zonal geraniums that we see in the coastal areas, this presentation will be a real eye opener.Many of Jim’s new plants are introduced in conjunction with the Marston House Museum in San Diego’s Balboa Park. He is very active in working with the Park Department to provide large geranium plantings throughout the park and has introduced a series of plants named after San Diego luminaries who were instrumental in the creation and development of Balboa Park. These include George Marston, Kate Sessions, John Spreckels and Anna Gunn Marston.
His series of virtually pest free geraniums have become the official City flowers of many California cities. These include: Santa Maria Centennial, Huntington Beach Centennial, Lompoc, Chula Vista Centennial and Hidden Jewel (the logo of the City of Villa Park). His Balboa Park 2015 was the Balboa Park signature plant for its 2015 celebration.
At our May meeting, we will also be voting on the slate of nominees for open board positions.Doors open at 3:30, with the program to follow.
