It smells wonderful! Small flowers, well behaved and lots of blooms.

Maybe? Wild Geranium (Geranium maculatum)

Thanks for the help. It must be a wild type since I know I never planted it and it can stay because it's so well behaved. I'll try and get photos of the flowers but the rain isn't helping.

Arlene, it looks like Karmina to me...

Fragrant, bigroot type, well behaved, lovely plant.

I could easily agree with you, Jeanie, but it arrived on the scene without my involvement and was just a small plant (as in "hard to notice") at least five years ago. The rain made it difficult to get a better shot of it, sorry. I'll try again when the sun shines. To my eyes it's a pink-lavender.

My Karmina is in the rose garden, far away from this spot.

Well, I do have geranium maculatum which is not a bigroot, much taller, and is a definite lavender color. I also have a couple in the sanguinem group and it's not one of those if it's fragrant. Of the bigroots I have Karmina, Bevan's and Ingwersen's. Bevan's is brighter pink, Ingwersen's is paler. Karmina seems about right if your photo is fairly accurate on color. I don't see why the seeds wouldn't get dispersed just like any other plant.

I'll take photos, with rulers in sight, of the plant height and flower height, when the sun shines...eventually.

You won't be able to get a name for this plant - there are too many similar geraniums. Definitely looks to be in the corner of G. x cantabrigiense and G. macrorrhizum - compare http://www.robsplants.com/plan... and http://www.robsplants.com/plan...

Thanks for the info, Rob. I figured being placed by nature that a name might be unlikely. I'll enjoy it for the scent and the beauty.
