new vigorous, freely-branching and freely-?owering Pelar goni um plants that have good high temperature performance. The new Pelargonium plant originated from a cross-polli nation made by the Inventor in September, 2005 in De Lier, The Netherlands of Pelargoniumxhorlorum ‘Fisrowi’, dis

White’. In addition, leaves of plants of the new Pelargonium have a distinct Zonation pattern whereas leaves of plants of ‘Fisum White’ do not have a distinct Zonation pattem. Plants of the new Pelargonium can be compared to plants

within the progeny of the stated cross-pollination in a con

trolled greenhouse environment in De Lier, The Netherlands, in March, 2006. Asexual reproduction of the new Pelargonium plant by vegetative terminal cuttings in a controlled greenhouse envi ronment in De Lier, The Netherlands, since July, 2006, has shown that the unique features of this new Pelargonium plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive genera tions.

the new Pelargoni um are more vigorous than plants of ‘ Fisum
