This is a Hybrid bred in Australia
Utterly charming

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

I stuck one in the garden this year and it is now a 4ft diameter, 2ft high shrub that has had easily 150blooms on it since april 1st!!!

I should get a picture of it...

Mine's only a little baby, just arrived :)

your lara flower and mine have a slightly different look...
I noticed this with a previous picture on this forum.

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?

Willacoochee, GA(Zone 8b)

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

Antrim, Northern Ire, United Kingdom(Zone 8b)

Oh no! How did that happen?
Can you replace them easily?

Antrim, Northern Ire, United Kingdom(Zone 8b)

I hope so. I'll be trying later while at work

Castelnau RB Pyrenée, France(Zone 8a)

Did you get there yesterday? :P

no skived off all day

Newnan, GA(Zone 8a)

I think this is one of the prettiest Pelargonium I've seen.

Willacoochee, GA(Zone 8b)

Tig, drive on over to my farm... I'll show you a few nicer ones :P

no seriously, if I had one Graveolens type to grow, this would be it.

DR, if life was a bit slower right now, I sure would!
