Pelargonium #5 from

mark4321_gwMarch 27, 2014

I bought a Pelargonium from a few days ago at the SF Flower and Garden Show. In all the plant shows and sales I've been to, I've never had more people ask me where they could get the plant I was carrying. So I figured I would post it in the appropriate forum.

Robin Parer from told me it was a new hybrid, which doesn't have a name yet. It's only being called "#5" at this point. A friend who has hybridized Pelargoniums in the past tells me he suspects P. 'Old Scarlet Unique' might be one of the parents, although I don't have confirmation of this..

They were selling many other interesting species and hybrids, including P. 'Splendide'.

Here is a link that might be useful:

Such a vibrant red. Pelargoniums grow so well in California. I have seen the purples everywhere but not that shade of red before.
