Pelargonium ionidiflorum is flowering in the cool (35F) Polyhouse
All the scented Pelargoniums have attractive flowers, but this one is exceptional. The flowers are small but dark and it flowers a lot! Plus the foliage is finely dissected and compact. The fragrance is described variously as "celery like" or just "fresh". I don't know but it's a good plant visually.
