We didn’t get a pic of the label but I think it may have had the word ‘abstract’ in it LOL. Will try and find it next time we visit! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Hope you can find it and its name. Googling it wouldn’t help because that would give you lots of abstract images, hehe! It does have a very similar marking to pelargonium petals and that makes me wonder what it would be like to see them planted near each other.

I can imagine doing a mix of patches – pelargoniums similar to the rose petals contrasted with white-petalled pelargoniums with red/pink markings. But I’m confident anything based on your idea would be lovely! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Gardening can be such fun! I love trying to put together planting schemes to see if they work or not… 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
