This plant was found just below the top of the southern bank of the burn during our litter pick on the links
Common name Pelargonium, geranium
Botanical name Pelargonium
Group Houseplants, bedding or greenhouse plants
Flowering time Mainly spring-summer
Height and spread 10-90cm (4in-3ft) by 7-50cm (3-20in)
Aspect Most need full sun, some tolerate partial shade
one is a bit of a Mystery as these pelargonium geraniums are not expected to survive the average British winter.
This one was quite small - its height was only 1.5 inches (2.5cm) and its spread was 2.5 inches (6.0cm).
unlikey that it grew from a seed as it is too early for it to flower
and usually when grown from seed they require a protective environment
such as a heated greenhouse.
It does not appear to be freshly planted, so its done very well to survive the winter we have just had.
