"Sammi Brougham" - Silver Bi-colour Zonal Pelargonium, and Wisley Display

Silver Bi-coloured zonal pelargonium "Sammi Brougham"
Another beautiful pelargonium raised by the late Brian West.   Sammi Brougham has single white flowers which are heavily speckled and splashed with bright red, set against silver and green bi-coloured leaves.   This is a cross betwen Chelsea Star and Vectis Volcano.

A couple of weeks ago members of The Pelargonium & Geranium Society Committee were at Wisley for the weekend to promote the Society.   It was a successful weekend and we all enjoyed chatting to members of the public, giving them advice and explaining the various types of pelargoniums.   Members who joined The Pelargonium & Geranium Society over the weekend were given a free scented pelargonium supplied by David and Susie Taylor of Gosbrook Pelargoniums.

Each year the staff at Wisley put on a magnificent display of pelargoniums in the Glasshouse.  It will run now until 16th June.  It is well worth a visit, but if you are not able to, then here are some photo's of the displays..

  1. I have a Sammi Brougham, and only found out when I saw your photo. Mine has separate flowers of pink and then red, and then striped, and then half red/half striped.
    I had no idea what it was.


I would love to hear your comments about my "ramblings".
