Regal Pelargonium "Georgia Peach" lives up to her name

Regal Pelargonium "Georgia Peach"
Popular the world over, Regal Pelargonium "Georgia Peach" is a real 'peach' of a Regal Pelargonium. The flowers have a slightly frilled edge and are the most gorgeous shade of peach with a paler throat.   Introduced by William Schmidt of California in 1968.  A good show plant, but apparently not easy.

Brian and I had a couple of days away in  Bournemouth again last week.  The reason for our second visit was because I wanted to visit Knoll Gardens and Nursery, just outside of Bournemouth.   Our previous visit had been at a weekend, and Knoll Gardens and nursery is not open at weekends.   We visited on Tuesday morning before the drive home.   I have to admit that I was a tad disappointed in the gardens, and both gardens and nursery were much smaller than I imagined.  The garden had a slightly unkempt look about it, particularly the pond area, but as we visited in Chelsea week and Knoll Gardens had just been awarded their tenth Gold Medal, the gardens were probably not a priority.  



Congratulations to Knoll Gardens on their 10th Gold Medal at Chelsea
