Companion plants to complement the pelargonium are Hebe ‘Quicksilver’, ‘Pink Pixie’, Cordyline australis and Musa basjou.
TV personality Baroness Floella Benjamin OBE, the celebrity champion for the Pelargonium, said:
"When I see pelargoniums my heart sings with joy. They are one of my favourite plants and they are such an easy patio plant to grow. I particularly love the vibrant flower colours which look stunning against their dark green foliage.
"Their scents are irresistible and fill the air with hints of rose, lemon, mint, fruit, nut, and spice. When they are in full flower they are spectacular and amazingly beautiful. I can't wait for summer when my patio is full of large tubs overflowing with dozens of pretty pelargoniums."
