The Zonal Pelargoniums we know today are due to centuries of breeding from the original wild form called Pelargonium zonale. All that is left of this species in modern day plants is the rounded leaf often with a brown marking or ‘zone’ in the centre. The graceful thin petals have been bred into dense domes of vibrant coloured flowers with multiple heads per stem. At Woottens we grow a select few zonal hybrids suitable for overwintering. Pelargonium Paul Crampel is a very old and handsome variety, as is The Boar (a P. frutetorum hybrid) and P. Betty Catchpole.
