'Berylette' - Miniature Zonal Pelargonium

Miniature zonal pelargonium 'Berylette'
Originating in Australia and introduced by Ted Both before 195, 'Berylette' is a miniature zonal pelargonium. The flowers are double white flushed with pink, which contrast nicely against the dark green foliage.  I find if the weather is not sunny, or the plant is growing in a shaded area, the flowers are a slightly darker pink.

Regal Pelargonium "Fareham"

"Fareham" Regal Pelargonium

With large flowers on a bushy and compact plant, Regal Pelargonium “Fareham” is a truly regal pelargonium. The flowers are a beautiful and brilliant deep royal purple with a lilac picotee edge.  “Fareham” was introduced by a Mr Pearce circa 1987.

I've just potted on my own seedlings from this year's seed.  Of the 18, some are 'bee' crosses, and some are my own.  I still have more seed to sow, but will wait until the beginning of next year to sow them now.
