Night scented Pelargonium, Greenhouse Geranium

Not to be confused with the hardy perennial garden Geraniums, these are greenhouse Pelargoniums. Generally, they are very shy seeders and seeds are difficult to collect and hand-picked. Unless otherwise stated, packets therefore contain only 7 seeds.

From South Africa comes this interesting and attractive, tuberous-rooted species with lovely, much-divided, large, very feathery, fern-like leaves, and bearing in summer clusters of brownish flowers with yellow margins that at night are sweetly scented. 12-18 ins. Packet of 7 seeds.
