Nicor Star - Dwarf zonal pelargonium

Nicor Star - Dwarf zonal pelargonium
 Nicor Star is one of those pelargoniums that is hardly noticed in the greenhouse for about nine months of the year, and suddenly, in mid- May you spot the pretty pink flowers.  The leaves are a basic dark green, and the flowers are a very pretty very pale pink with a thin darker pink edge to the petals on a dwarf plant.  It is the darker star shaped centre of each flower that gives this plant its name. It was first introduced in 2002 by Sulmans Nursery.    I first saw this plant in Canada about eight years ago, and immediately put it on my ‘wish list’.
