This one of my favourite tri-coloured leaf zonal pelargonium. I usually grow it in a pot by my front door each summer. The front door is in shade for most of the day, apart from very early morning (before I am up!) and the situation seems to suit this plant well. The leaves shine and I also get flowers. Warrenorth Emerals was raised by Andrew Simmons and released through the Warrenorth Nursery. I don't know the year, but this was one of a series that Andrew released all named for gems.
I drove over to Crawley a couple of Saturdays ago to see the Crawley Horticultural Society Show. This is their summer show and incorporates the Pelargonium Show. I was very impressed at the size of the pelargonium section and the standard of the plants. A show I will definitely go back to.
