can you identify this geranium? - Knowledgebase Question

Question by juliaUK

It is growing up from one central point, ie is not clump forming, the hairs near the flowers are very sticky, which made me think it might be a Herb Robert geranium, but I can't see one online with this colouring. It didn't flower in year one, flowered profusely in year two (see photo), flowered a little in year three; I suspect its basically biennial. Stands about 40-50 cms high and around the same spread. Thanks!

Thank you, that's the one! What a shame, I threw away all the hundreds of spent flowers & seeds not realising until this year that, doh!, it might be biennial!
