Even though I took this photo more than a month ago the Pelargoniums are still going strong even though we are now starting the last week of August!

Glad you love it! They have rewarded me tremendously this year. I have three different varieties growing in the same pot. They have shared the same pot for 3 or 4 years so this spring I decided to change the soil in the pot. I repotted them in the same pot with fresh compost & at the same time pulled off some pieces which I put into 5" pots. They have never flowered so profusely & for so long as this year! They were originally a present from my wife after she went with some friends to a gardening centre for a coffee & a chat.

Your wife made a great choice!

I'm afraid that is the last photo of this year! :( Most of the flowers you see there have now fallen off. I can't complain as they have flowered since April - 6 months of lovely flowers! :)

They were all the rage when my wife bought them, you could find 1,000s of them in town! Now you can't find one!

I did a search for them on the internet a few weeks ago & you can still buy them from some nurseries.

If you want to buy some they are called Pelargonium Angel Eyes. Here is just one of the results: http://www.pac-elsner.com/uk/pelargonien/pelargonien-crispum.html

As you will see "Angel Eyes" is the name of the Variety not the individual plants.

There're still a few flowers left & I have several small plants in 5" pots. They haven't done nearly as well as I'd hoped but perhaps next year ...
