|Zonal pelargonium "Carmel"|
An old variety, 'Carmel' was introduced by Wm. Schmidt in the U.S.A. in 1939. It has the most exquisite single flowers of white edged with a dark pink. 'Carmel' is a sport from 'Alice of Vincennes' which is a single zonal perlargonium with flowers that have a white centre with violet crimson to scarlet edge.
I've been re-potting some of my pelargoniums that have been in their pots for over a year. It gives them a boost to have fresh compost. Also potting on the few that I have left after the disaster earlier this year when I knocked a large tray of cuttings onto the floor and threw most of them away as pots, labels and cuttings were all over the greenhouse floor. I don't like to have plants that I have no idea of the name and not prepared to wait for them to flower.
