Purple Heart

Purple Heart
I'm not quite sure why this Stellar Pelargonium is named Purple Heart, since the single flowers are orange.   However, it is a lovely plant.  The typical star shaped stellar leaves have a deep zone with green to the centre and edge.

Purple Heart was hybridised by Frances Parmenter and introduced in 2001.    I have been told this is difficult to grow, but I have not found it so.  It easily makes a good well branched plant.
