      Yes, they are pretty nice sized to be sure, and if one were to count up all the energy used to produce a rare botanical of this calibre, $20.00 each is a bargain. They do make seed. Unlike many other geraniums, these have a tuberous root which stays put and does not run out to more plants, nor do they make pups, and cuttings are not really an option. Its all seedgrown. Richo
