Hi, I would like to see if you know of this type of pelargonuim or as we call it in Malta, sardinella.
I have had this plant since 1985, and I had taken the cutting from a very old garden which does not exist anymore. It's a slow grower but the flowers are lovely. At the moment it is in bloom.

I had to Google sardinella, so in relation to pelargoniums, the common names are fish, storksbill, zonal or horseshoe geraniums. They are named such because many have zones or patterns in the center of the leaves, some more pronounced, others very subtle.
The 'type' is known as Pelargonium × hortorum
