Fran Godfrey is a Sum and Substance sport from Richard and Mary Ford in England. It is a light centered sport with a dark edge.

I lost track of this pot of Fran Godfrey - the pot tipped over and was hidden by a Guardian Angel. This pot is going into my new bed to give it some room to grow.

And one ugly leaf - probably hit by early season frost.

Just for the fun of it I put Fran Godfrey next to my S&S sport "Romulus" to see the opposite coloration.
