Pelargonium ‘Stel­lar Apri­cot’

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

This is such a tricky sal­mon colour to use in the gar­den but worth the ef­fort be­cause, like all pe­largo­ni­ums, it goes on for­ever and never baulks at heat or dry. In Auck­land, most of these South African stars are hardy but clumps can quickly be­come tired and woody, and need prop­a­gat­ing ev­ery few years.

Dark blue flower part­ners work well with this vi­brant colour; try aqui­le­gias in spring and lo­belias or blue salvias in sum­mer.
