Black Prince, Regal Pelargonium & visit to Australia

Regal Pelargonium Black Prince has the darkest flowers and is one that is always asked about when RHS Wisley have their Pelargonium show in May each year. They are always surprised to know that it is an old variety, having been around since 1852.    The petals are a very dark maroon with a thin pale edge to them.  Dark centre to each petal with dark feathering out to the edge. The plant has a strong and bushy growing habit.

I've just come back from three weeks in Australia visiting family.   I had the most marvellous time and my sister Pauline arranged a few visits to other pelly folk in the Adelaide area. 

The first visit was to Rodger and Jenny Argent, members of the South Australian Geraniums and Pelargonium Society Inc. in Adelaide, of which I am also a member.   Here are a few pictures of their growing houses and their garden.
