this a fantastic Pelargonium for the house while in flower. As darkness comes it gently releases a cinnamon scent which gets stronger as the night progresses

Can't wait for my little baby to grow - thanks Mark, it actually survived being cooked in the car for the weekend and then being squashed by a large torch lol!

I was amazed that it already had such a large tuber
It's interesting that this sp is so variable in flower colour and the amount of division in the leaves
The flowers on yours look very good

I've just got John Feltwell's book 'Geraniums and Pelargoniums' (something with a clear title using the right names at last LOL)

In there he describes the fragrance of P triste as "one of the most intricate scents ranging from clove oil through incense to carnations, glue and joss sticks"

Mmmmmmmm
(though not so sure about the glue - he doesn't specify which brand lolol)
