Pelargonium 'Wychwood'
Pelargonium ‘Wychwood’

Wychwood is a Pansy-faced geranium – a part of the Angel Pelargoniums. It grows as an upright little bush with medium green leaves. The flowers are deep plum on top with the palest lavendar lower petals. The foliage has a pleasant rose-citrus scent.

So what are the Angel Pelargoniums? They are floriferous, branching bushes that grow long stems. There are two groups of Angels: The original group was developed around 1825. This group’s parentage is unknown and it is unscented. The modern Angel Pelargoniums were first developed in the 1930s. One of the parents of this group is Pelargonium crispum, the lemon scented geranium. So the scented-leaf factor was introduced.
