where the garden meets the keyboard
That's not just a set of decent photos, they're marvelous. One to look for next year. I love that wispy flower and fuzzy foliage.
Thanks Alison, if you use a green plant as the background you can barely see the bloom !
Those are some CRAZY blooms for a Pelargonium. No wonder it's your fave this week. It's hard to tell how large they are, but totally wild!!
They are not large Jane, maybe 1-1/2 ..I was also told they are night fragrant but I have never been able to detect it.
Wow, that IS a beauty! Looks so exotic!
Definitely the most exotic plant I have at this point !
You had me at schizopetalum! What a great flower and the foliage looks pretty fabulous too!
I originally bought it for the foliage Loree..I think I had it 2 years before it bloomed.
When I saw the picture of the bloom, I had to look back and check the name. I wouldn't have recognized this as a pelargonium based on the flower alone - it looks like some orchids I've seen. I'm going to have to scour Robin Parer's site more carefully for unusual offerings.
Look though the species Pelargonium section on Robins site Kris; there is all sorts of cool stuff there !
Love it...crazy and elegant!
Elegant, yes, a very apt description...
