Does anyone know which Hardy Geranium this is?

It can be huge. It was the 2 foot tall bit that steered me away from psilostemon. Lovely plant, I agree.

plant them, they won't keep til next year. 


I think you're supposed to plant those on their sides so that dent in them doesn't fill up with water.


I can't remember if I did that or not but they keep coming back every year.

only 400 MU? 


There's pages of them in Plantfinder, I've never counted them though.


There's the difference with the desirable Craig. There's only a little bit of Rozanne in my garden, it's never grown to dividing size. Maybe I should look after it better,

platypetalum is a species and will seed, x magnificum won't, It doesn't make impenetrable mounds like magnificum and is far less often grown

my x magnificum didn't flower for a few weeks, much less than that.


I think you're right about maculatum.


Things that are being given away in clumps are usually something you might regret later 


and rarely a named variety. Except x magnificum 

Iris's growing already

bulbs often appear early but they usually sort themselves out by flowering time. As you say, not much you can do about it

the second one could just possibly be a G. maculatum or cultivar but I'm not putting any money on that.


re the first one


there's an old hybrid called Geranium x magnificum that might be the one. Flowers once, not for long,


There was some of that here when we came, great mounds of it, few flowers but, again brief, late summer leaf colour. Sterile I think, there were never any babies.
