Hi Jo Ann,

I am thinkingf this could possible be another Geraniun cantabrigiense cultivar as 'Biokovo' is a white tinged with pink and pink stamens. Your two images show pretty deep pink blooms
Here are the other cantabrigiense listings:

I think the mix up is due to some sources calling'' Karmina'' ''Boikovo Karmina" (bluestone perennials does this)

One of Jo Ann's photos is already under'' Biokovo Karmina''
this is a pink cross and ''Biokovo'' is white with a pink stamen
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

That looks right but I'll wait for Jo Ann to chime in first before moving her images over. Thumbs up Thanks Cinda for your input!

I will move it for you Jo Ann, just want to see if you agreed with the ID of 'Karmina' as Cinda suggested based on how the nurseries seem to be listing it

FYI, in the future if you ever discover you have posted and image to an incorrect entry and you want to have it moved to the correct one, enlarge the image and then scroll down to the 'Actions' section and click on "Move this image to another plant". It will bring up a page where you can type in the name of the correct entry and then you check that entry and submit it for approval. Very easy.
Also, if you find someone has entered a suspected incorrect image, rather than propose a deletion, it's preferable to either start a thread (enlarge image first and use the "Post a comment about this photo" section) and see if the owner of that image can give some further input or you can contact a Database admin to do so.

Probably needs some further digging to get some of these names straight but in the meantime, I'll move your images. Thanks Jo Ann. Thumbs up

OK, here's some more info:
"Geranium x cantabrigiense ‘Karmina’ – 'Karmina' Cambridge Geranium appears to be the accepted cultivar name for 'Biokovo Karmina' Geranium. Considered "rhizomatous", it is the result of crosses between G. macrorrhizum and G. dalmaticum. Crosses of those species have become know as the Cambridge Geraniums. The flowers are frequently described as carmine red, but it always seems considerably lighter and move lavendar than red."

So it looks like I'll have to combine two entries. Thumbs up
