    If it has aromatic leaves its more than likely geranium macrorrhizum. If the leaves don't smell strongly it is possibly geranium endressii.

    Thanks  Ladybird- it does indeed have quite strong smelling leaves- very herby and gets on your chest a bit

    How big is it? It's hard to judge scale but looks a bit small for macrorrhizum. I wonder about xcantabrigiense which is a cross between macrorrhizum and dalmaticum.

    But if it's more than 8'' tall it's macrorrhizum

    Its about a foot or so talll - taller in some places than others.

    Thankyou all

    I look forward to impressing my visitors with fancy latin names! (The plant not the visitors?)Hopefully they will like my little cypresses too- it looks like an police identity parade when you look at it from the front!
