A hint of Japanese

Regal Pelargonium 'Kimono'
As you will know, I am not a Regals person (note the 's'), but anyone who sees this cannot help but be charmed by it. I took this photo at the Pelargonium Display at Wisley this year. The plant was covered in blooms and looked stunning. 'Kimono' was hybridised by Brian Dixon and introduced in 1993.  It is  a Decorative Regal.  They have a longer flowering period and also grow taller that the usual Regal Pelargoniums, which makes them ideal for summer container planting.
