Hello I can’t remember what this is? It’s stayed green all winter. Is it a geum or a geranium or something else? Thankyou

    I think it's a geum, but I don't know which, there are lots.

    Geum. I consider it a pest in my garden and difficult to eradicate. 
    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).

    Thanks @Papi Jo oh I thought they were ok plants? Many seem to love the tangerine ones? Is this one poss a wild weedy type variety?

    No, I don't think so. Wood avens, geum urbanum is the wild weed one. That grows well in my garden in SW France, but I have trouble with the cultivated ones.
    The colour of yours looks like a cultivated variety.

    It is a cultivated variety and should be well behaved.
