  • Posted by ILPARW (southeast Pennsylvania - Zone 6b) on Jan 5, 2021 4:53 PM concerning plant:
    This Pelargonium (Geranium) species comes from South Africa, as many of the genus. It is somewhat commonly planted as an annual flower in the USA. Its smooth, leathery leaves look similar to English-Ivy in shape. It makes a great hanging annual plant in pots and boxes as it droops over in habit. It is not as commonly planted or known as the more stout, upright, fuzzy, and larger Zonal Geranium.
