Confusingly known as geraniums, pelargoniums are in the same plant family as hardy geraniums, but fall into a different genus and bear no resemblance to them at all. They are normally grown as annual bedding plants although they can be overwintered indoors, and are prized for their bright summer flowers and attractive, often fragrant, foliage.

Angel pelargoniums are attractive, bushy plants with small rounded leaves and pansy-like flowers. They bear masses of flowers and are well suited to growing in pots and hanging baskets.

Pelargonium ‘Cottenham Wonder’ is a long-flowering and fast-growing angel pelargonium with pink flowers in varying shades, and darker purple veining on the petals. For best results, feed with a high-potash fertiliser during summer and deadhead spent blooms regularly. Bring plants indoors for winter.
