Mystery Plant Identified

At Tuesday's meeting, Barbara brought this plant to be identified.

Everyone loved its silvery foliage and dark velvet-red flowers, but no-one knew its name
Since then, both our speaker that evening, Anne Worrall, and I have separately gone on an internet hunt for it, and we both found it at almost the same time.
It's Pelargonium sidoides, also known as South African geranium or Kaloba.
Now we just need to find a garden centre that sells it!
