This is a Hybrid bred in Australia
Utterly charming

The true colouring is a little softer than shown in the photograph

What a fabulous plant!
Yes, yours really looks as if starshine is falling on it
Looks as if mine may not be a good version, perhaps I'll see what some of the other UK nurseries' plants look like.

Which other plant did you think differs?

on the LaraStarshine on Mark's page... or at least I recall seeing it posted here.

it *may* not be the var... many Pelargoniums have differing flowers on younger plants than on older more established plants.

guess we'll know in a year :P
My source for this cultivar was Geraniacea (Robin Parer's Nursery)

Mark bought his from a nursery exhibiting at the Gardeners' World Live show in Birmingham. I bought mine later, but I think from the same nursery

Yes, I was going to mention the difference between juvenile and mature plants

We also bought a number of species plants from Robin Parer, but not Starshine. I'll try and find his photo
