Which leaves go with the flower? I think its a geranium flower and the right leaves are off to the middle right.

No Idea.. We do have wild geraniums, but the flowers are smaller and have long pollinia .

The flowers look similar to Geranium psilostemon.
G. psilostemon, is native to Central Europe and East-Central Asia,

Maybe this is a better match..Geranium subcaulescens...native to Balkans.

Everything matches save for the hardiness zone. If Im 6b, this one has got to be 4 or 5 at best, given it grows on mountain tops...

Maybe this will help.
Quote from link below....

"Geranium subcaulescens L'Hér. ex DC.

This attractive, eastern Mediterranean mountain species is often cultivated in rock gardens. In the Prespa area it is not uncommon in meadows at high altitude (1800-2200 m) on Mt Varnous, and also scattered on the somewhat lower limestone mountains."
