Its fern like leaves seems to dance in the wind due to their very indented, wavy margins. It is originating in South Africa and our plants were started from seeds bought from Cape Town two years ago.
With my previous articles, I told you about other lemon-rose scented pelargoniums like Atomic Snowflake, or Rober's Lemon Rose, all of them having vigorous growing habit - which make them very decorative houseplants and good background plants in the gardens over the summer.
Like the most scented pelargoniums, Candy Dancer, is not frost hardy plant and we keep them inside during the cold months. When outside, the sun warms gently their leaves each summer-days, and makes their hairy surface to glow.
Bloom intermittently but their very small five-petaled pink flowers are hidden under the leaves. It has a very compact growing habit, with upright stems (perfect to be trained in form of columns) and a great density of leaves. We love its aroma in cookies and jellies and some plants are left untrimmed to produce as many leaves as possible.
Others were shaped and potted in bonsai pots ... and believe me, it cheers our spirit every time when touching leaves, wiring branches or trimming outer shoots or leaves.
We enjoyed letting the kids play with their dalmatian figures and choosing a spot for one of them in the mini-forest arrangement.
Don't you think it looks cute?
