Gene bank for Pelargonium acessions

In the field of ornamental horticulture, a collection of geraniums will be preserved to serve as a research object and to support teaching. The Pelargonium collection comes from Prof. Dr. Frank Pohlheim (former Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin). Before his emeritus status, he handed over the collection to the HTW Dresden in 2018. Since 01.04.2018, the HTW has been a genus-specific partner of the subnetwork Pelargonium of the gene bank for vegetatively propagated ornamental plants. The collection consists of approximately 50 Pelargonium acessions, including mutations of Pelargonium x hortorum 'Kleiner Liebling'. There is material with different ploidy levels and different flower and leaf forms.
