I found this at my MIL and posted it on DG. Someone there said it was a geranium. Is that correct? If so, how do I care for it? Does it seed or come back again?

Yes, it is a perennial geranium, also known as cranesbill. I don't know the cultivar. Geraniums are wonderful plants. It should be perennial for you.

My perennial geraniums die down to the ground in fall/ winter. It emerges in spring from the roots.

General care

thank you, I saved that link and will look it over when I get time.
I am going to save the pant instead of tossing it!
