Check out Geranium x oxonianum 'Katherine Adele. I think it's a good match.

I just checked out the versicolor, having a hard time finding a picture of the leaves with the dark markings.
I did read one description that said ''light green leaves occasionally marked with brown''

Don't know if it means some plants have brown color or there is some color on the leaves?

I do see the flowers look a lot a like.

I found one http://www.wildflowersofireland.net/plant_detail.php?id_flow... , but I still can't offer an opinion on which one it is. They're very similar to me.

I think I found the right one
Geranium x oxonianum 'Walter's Gift' (Geranium x oxonianum x Geranium versicolor)

http://geraniaceae.com/cgi-bin/detail.py?id=261
The confusion is now understandable, being a crossing between the oxonianum and versicolor Hilarious!

I love the G. versicolor on the wild flowers of Ireland link! I haven't seen anything like that. Love the purple veining on the flowers!! Any idea where or if that one is available in the US?

I had started on a search for seeds - then got side-tracked. Hilarious!

I love it too!

Thanks for letting us know that you have them. Big Grin
