    My neighbour two doors over kindly gave me permission to take a picture of a plant that was put in by a landscaper three years ago. I'd like to grow it too. Anyone know what this is please?

        Thank you @flounder ! I'd never heard of a geranium that was hardy enough for my climate. :dbgrtmb:

          I have several cranesbill geraniums and they seem quite tough. Don't seem to mind strong, salt laden winds and will grow in damp or dry soil and tolerate heat or cold well.

            I'd hazard a guess that it's the variety 'Rozanne'. It's an amazing plant that flowers for months on end, even here!

              I agree with you. I have three that look like the picture but can't remember the name.

                      Thank you everyone. :) Yes, they just seemed to flower all summer and that really impressed me and made me really want to add some to my front garden. Maybe even some in the back too!
