I believe this type of ''geranium'' belongs in the Pelargonium genus
I know it is confusing but this genus is the hardy perennial also known as crainsbill.

I agree. The generic entry for Pelargoniums is here:

Pelargoniums (Pelargonium)

There appears to be a lot of photos of Pelargoniums in the generic Geranium data base.

Since "Geranium" is a common name for Pelargoniums KFredenburg probably uploaded her 5 photos to the Main Plant Entry for the Genus Geraniums, not realizing that her photos are of Pelargonium. Her photos can be moved to the entry Pelargoniums (Pelargonium)

You are correct Lin. I did not know what type of cranesbill/geranium it was, so I just posted it in the general entry for all geraniums.

But now I know that it is a pelargonium, so thanks guys!
