Geraniums

I went to a couple of open gardens this morning. Great inspiration. Typically the plants I liked didn't have a label on them. Are you able to help?

    No 4 could be the same as one we have called Geranium nodosum Svelte Lilac. What do you think?

    Hi. The white one looks like Geranium renardii. I feel I should know the one in the top two pictures but its taking a while to surface!

    from the top

    G. sanguineum

    G. nodosum

    G. renardii

    maybe cultivars of same but I think the renardii is the species plant

    Got there eventually. Top one is geranium sanguineum.

    I think I bought geranium sanguieum, but it doesn't form lovely clumps like this.  Is it my sandy soil playing havoc with it ?

    Bizarrely I have the Nodsum one (thanks to GW offer last year), except I have the pink version.  Looking forward to it flowering.

    Thank you for your amazing ID's.  So many different varieties, I'm seriously impressed.
