Hi Summer.I'm open to correction,your Geranium looks very much like the "Geranium Macorrhizum". This clump-forming perennial often forms large colonies in its shady Mountain habitats of Southern Europe.The Flower colours vary from Pink or Purplish to pure white.

Strictly speaking, it's a pelargonium, not a geranium, but I wouldn't know anything more about it.

Hi Summer.Any of the various Plants and Shrubs of the genus "Pelargonium" also includes the "Geraniums".

Hi Guy's. (and thanks for the replies) Yea it was given to me by this Old Lady as a "Geranium". I would like to know if its of old stock, as its my opinion, that it could have been in her family, for years.
