The Victorian conservatory at Wallington Hall garden is always filled with wonderful plants, and always includes pelargoniums.
I was particularly struck by this one which didn't have a label.
Can anyone help with an ID?

I have no idea, but I really love it! I'll be anxious to see if anyone can come up with the name of this one.

I think it's one of the Scented Geraniums Pelargonium graveolens.

The flowers are similar to P. graveolens, but the leaves are very different.
