Wedding Royale

Wedding Royale
Congratulations and best wishes to the Royal couple on their Wedding Day.

Wedding Royale is a compact gold leaf zonal pelargonium with a chestnut zone.  It is a rosebud type with tight rose pink flowers, which resemble rose buds as they open.  

Introduced in 1982 by John Thorpe, Wedding Royale was raised by Dick Smith of Hinckly, Near Leicestershire.  It is believed that it may have been named for the wedding of Prince William's parents, Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981.   This makes sense as it would not have been released until the following year.

Wedding Royale is a really lovely pelargonium and one that I would like to have in my collection again.
