|chelle pointed me to this photo:|
She's pretty sure it's not a Hardy Geranium (Geranium bohemicum 'Orchid Blue'). Does anybody know what this is?

|This is the same incorrect image was also uploaded on DG under just Geranium bohemicum, not this cultivar.|
Here a good image of Geranium bohemicum http://www.robsplants.com/plan... so it's neither one.

|I've deleted it from the database. If we ever figure out what it is, it'll be easy enough to propose it be added back in out of this very thread.|

|I wish I could see the foliage more. If it had dark stamens and rounded petals it would remind me a bit of Geranium Sweet Heidy, but it's clearly not that. I'd like to have it if you find out what it is.|

|This looks like Geranium sylvaticum 'Mayflower' |
It might be a similar cultivar but the flowers look right from what I can see, this site can be trusted to have the correct photo..
Nikita is similar but not as good a match, so is Amy Doncaster.
There's a list of sylvaticum cultivars on this US site for sale.. many from Crug plants
It could be the straight species Geranium sylvaticum ..
You can view a very wide range of Geranium on Crug Farm plants, these people are plant hunters who have often met up with Dan Hinkley of the former Heronwood.
From the leaf I can see at about 1 o'clock it looks like G. sylvaticum, I can find nothing else which comes close and I imagine there will be some variation with different forms.

|That was grown out from seeds I received marked G. bohemicum Orchid Blue from a trade. The flowers are only about 1" across, the plant is only about 8" high, and spreads maybe 12" or so. It is a hardy geranium, I've had it growing for 4 or 5 years, now. I have over 35 different of hardy geraniums, but I just never questioned what this was, since I had it listed on a seed pack. I can see from the photos in the links that that is not what I have. I will take some photos in the spring, and maybe someone can ID it from those.|
