Please can you tell me the name of this geranium? I think I bought it from a plant stall in the market last year, so it just said geranium. Thank you in advance for your help.
Looks like geranium macrorhizum Ingwerson's variety - see here for more info - https://www.rhs.org.uk/plants/search-results?form-mode=false&query=Geranium%20macrorrhizum
You can confirm it if the leaves are scented. Good in dry shade but also copes in sun and is fully hardy, unlike pelargoniums which are sometimes, and incorrectly, still called geraniums.
Looks like one of the Geranium Macrorrhizums
I looks a bit small, I wonder if it's the cross between macrorrhizum and dalmatica. G. x cantabrigiense. 'Biokovo' is about that colour. Has the macrorrhizum leaf smell
Just been out to smell the leaves - it does smell, a bit unpleasant to me though.
I thought it looked like biokovo too. I have that here. It's nowhere near flowering yet though. I can hardly detect any smell on foliage anyway - so pointless me going out to check the leaves!
Is it meant to smell nice? I've decided I don't like the smell. It looks like it could either be Ingwerson or Biokovo. Thank you.
I agree the colour is about right for Biokovo - but I thought the leaves looked a bit too dull (I mean a bit 'flat' - not a bit boring) and 'felty' for biokovo. My biokovo leaves are a bit glossy.
You might well be right T'bird.
It's not to my taste at all (biokovo) but it was one of the few things in this garden when I moved here - it currently resides at the front gate where I don't have to look at it!
The flowers are pale pink and the leaves are soft green, very slightly felty, but not glossy.
