I have moved my pelargonium pot to a sunnier side of our garden, and with this very mild, drier winter, their tri-colors are really lovely to see, adding additonal warm color in an otherwise chilled garden Big Grin

I love your pelargonium leaves. I can't seem to find any with leaves that color. I found some yesterday at Home Depot, but they didn't have that awesome color on their leaves. Do you know where I might find some like yours?

I got this from a local garden nursery here in 2010, and I have not seen tri-color ones in our local Home Depot either. Maybe try a fulltime garden nursery, not the big box stores..maybe they have some leftover ones from previous season. I remember I got this one as leftovers already.

When it is in shade, it loses its tri-color feature..try to look again, in shade they look like this:



As summer comes, it gives these lovely blooms:

Hi Debbie, I just tried to see online if there is a company selling them and I saw this:

I have not used them, but they have it.

Thank you so much Tarev. I found what I wanted to order on that website, but I can't figure out how to order it. Smiling

Oh,you are right! I do not see any add to cart button..interesting! Maybe you just have to physically call or email them and ask if they do mail order.

My pelargonium has formed her flower buds quite early, with just the first few weeks of Spring:

I have ordered from Pepper's Greenhouses (accentsforhome...) several times and always received quality product.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

tarev , do they flower all season? I just love yours.

Debra, thanks for the info. I'm off to check them out again. I purchased several from home depot and several more from Doug youngs nurseries. But none of them have leaves as pretty as tarev's.

Usually they flower early summer, though this year it is starting her buds much earlier. Smiling Then they just retain the leaves. I do have to shelter it in a shadier area, it is just too dry and hot come summer, so the leaves lose the tri-colors.
