Dwarf Pelargonium "Bold Cyclamen" and Cairns Botanic Gardens


Unfortunately, I am unable to find much out about this beautiful zonal pelargonium, Bold Cyclamen.  With the 'Bold' prefix, I know it is by John Gibbons. He released a lot of plants in the 1990's/early 2000.  Purple pink double flowers with green leaves.


On my visit to Australia last October I visited Cairns and went to the Botanic Gardens there.   I saw some quite exotic plants and butterflies in what I think was the fern house.















Can you see the butterfly?

Dwarf Zonal Pelargonium "Jip's Pedlars Lace" and Seasons Greetings

Zonal Pelargonium "Jip's Pedlars Lace"


This has to be one of the most delicately coloured pelargoniums around.  Palest pink and pale blush pink semi-double flowers.  Raised by Tony Burgess in the UK.

This is my last post for 2017.  I send my very warmest wishes to you for a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
