Dwarf Zonal Pelargonium "Mary Spink", and the Australian Pelargonium Sale

Dwarf Zonal Pelargonium "Mary Spink"

With light gold foliage and double salmon flower heads, the dwarf zonal pelargonium “Mary Spink” makes a stunning plant.   Pelargonium “Mary Spink” was introduced about 1992, and named after owner of Swanland Nursery, a well known pelargonium nursery here in the UK. 

Mary was also the last President of the former British and European Geranium Society, now merged with The British Pelargonium and Geranium Society to become ThePelargonium and Geranium Society.   

I last wrote about the South Australian Geranium and Pelargonium Society Inc Annual Show.  At the Show each year they also hold a huge sale of pelargoniums which is very popular with local gardeners.  I had a wonderful three days helping to set up the show and the sale and selling plants.   Here are just a few views of the sale.
