|Royal Ascot - Decorative Regal Pelargonium|
So far I have discovered that Royal Ascot first appeared in the Proceedings (?Committee meetings) at the Royal Horticultural Society in 1891. It was awarded a Floral Certificate, one of two awarded at this meeting (the other was an ivy leaf: Beauty of Castle Hill). Royal Ascot was described as "Brilliant scarlet, white centre, dark blotches, making it Regal group". It was presented by C. Turner of the Royal Nurseries, Slough.
