Dahlia 'Pooh' is a lovely flower though not completely orange.

Trollius 'Orange Crest' is beautiful too

Although I might throw a guess at Bearded Iris?

grrrr They all look too much alike, I can see some flower buds forming on the plant so I might try again when it starts to flower.

They were all labelled with it at the garden centre so I guess they dont even know themselves what they are growing! lol

They had big bushes of their own which I guess they had taken the cuttings from.

Im going to do some more browsing of the internet for it.

I bought it as a Pelargonium because thats what I was shopping for.

I know the names always get mixed up so I didnt think anything of it.

There was just a little white label with that name on it when I bought it.

It is a beautiful smell though, I wish I knew exactly what it was :P

Is it only me ??

These baskets do make for great big balls of colour in the Summer. I have lined mine this year with coco liners and the water doesnt seem to drain out of the holes.

Hi all, I bought this lovely Geranium which has a beautiful soft citrusy smell.

It was labelled Geranium Madarense but I have my doubts about this after some research.

Could anyone clarify it?

How lovely, no tame Squirrels here but the Sparrows that have lived here for about a year now dont mind me being around.
