Stellar Arctic Star - Stellar Pelargonium

Stellar Arctic Star
We have been experiencing near Arctic conditions recently here in the U.K. which brought this beautiful stellar to mind.

Bred by Mrs. Marj. Edwards of Australia, Arctic Star was introduced there in the early 1960's.  It was one of the first stellars introduced by Mrs Edwards.   She had obtained some stellars, or Staphs as they are known in Australia, from Ted Both, the originator of the Stellar pelargoniums  and Arctic Star was the only plant worth introducing from her first batch of seedlings from them.  Arctic Star was introduced into the U.K. in or around 1968 as Stellar Arctic Star

Arctic Star has single white flowers which are very lightly flushed with pink.  The leaves are typically star shaped.
