Concolor Lace, pelargonium with vivid flowers

I found, by chance, a marveled scentedleaf pelargonium, with deeply divided leaf and small red blossoms with pronounced dark reddish feathering to the upper two petals.

I really love its vivid color, unusual for scentedleaf pelargoniums flowers.

The plant is known as 'Concolor Lace' aka  "Shottesham Pet" or "Filbert" scented pelargonium (geranium).

I have read many times about this variety of Scented Pelargonium and I saw many pictures of it... but only now I was finding a real plant to see, feel and smell it.

The foliage seems to have a pungent smell - with some notes of spicy nutty or hazel (is said that this is the reason why is sometimes referred as Filbert).

Its compact columnar growing habit makes this plant a suitable pelargonium for a new project... Plenty of time here, especially being just a little healthy cutting ;-) 

Welcome to my home! Cross my fingers to root well!
