could it be a Geranium Salomé?

I was cutting back my new very vigorous Geranium Salome and found this little plant next to it. Could it be another G.Salome and what shall I do about it? All advices grateful received as ever!

  • Wait for comformation but that looks like herb Robert which most call a weed. It is a geranium though.
  • The leaf shape is wrong for Salomé. It looks more like geranium robertianum, but I can’t be sure. It might be a seedling from Salomé, in which case you can wait until it flowers and decide what to do with it then.

    Thank you pitter-patter and the victorianzFH0. I note what you say and wait to see what next year brings. I hope it’s another G. Salomé though. It’s such a fantastic plant - very long flowering and vigorous 
  • Try picking a tiny bit, crush it and smell.
    Geranium robertianum...common name Herb Robert stinks.

    Thank you Silver Surfer for the good trick. I will try it as soon as the rain stops!
  • Don’t be tempted to trim the plant once the flowering has finished as the foliage turns a beautiful shade of red and it lasts for ages 😀

    Looks like herb robert to me too. Foliage isn't right for G. salome.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
