I've never really been aware of pelagoniums (pelogonia?) being so beautiful. In fact I can't recall any in gardens I know. I'll have to keep an eye open for them.
It's almost as if that pinky violet colour has been painted on by a watercolourist.
'Tis the last pelagonium of summerLeft blooming alone;All her lovely companionsAre faded and gone;No flower of her kindred,No pelagoniumbud is nigh,To reflect back her blushes,To give sigh for sigh.Doesn't have the same ring, somehow.
