Pelargoniums
The Fancy-Leaved Pelargoniums have some of the most colourful foliage in plant cultivation. The combination of leaf and flower seem endless. Silver and bronze leaf varieties appeared as spontaneous mutations in the 19th century. Combinations of these were used by hybridisers which resulted in the tri-colours with their remarkable coloured foliage. They are slower growing than the green leaved varieties and they will require a little extra heat in the winter combined with good light to ensure success.
