Hi Philippa,

Some suggestions from our social media:

"Herb Robert? Or similar member of the geranium family."
"Geranium maderense"
"Looks like one of the Geranium species of plants ????"
"Looks like a cranebill to me"
"Hardy geranium (ie not the pelargoniums)"
"Geranium palmatum. Only hardy in sheltered warm gardens."
"Looks rather like Herb Robert to me too"
"Herb Robert has a pale centre, red buds and stems, whereas Geranium palmatum, which is what I think it is (hard to judge scale in a photo) has deep pink centres and rather less finely cut foliage."

A few suggestions for you. Hope this helps?
Cheers, Nicola

Ooh - Is this a Geranium Maderense? Madeira Geranium; you see them everywhere in the Scillly Isles; they have a huge central bouquet of magenta flowers framed by an architectural circle of the leaves! They look great but are NOT winter hardy. Let me know if i'm right!

It look like the leaves of Geranium Maderense. Google and select images.It is Half Hardy in the UK , as the name Madeira implies. The hardy variety is Geranium Palmatum and is Frost hardy .
Both Look very similar and are often confused. They are both stocked by Burncoose Nurseries in Cornwall who no doubt know which is which.
Many seed companies get the info wrong leading to disappointment, if you are after the hardy variety.

Hi, Carole,
Since it is tender, the best time to sow seed of Geranium maderense is in spring with heat in spring - between 13-18C. Do you have this in your 'Plants I Have' list? If so, you will get detailed care instructions on all methods of propagation.

Hi Tessa,

Geranium maderense is evergreen so should retain most of it’s leaves. The yellowing on some which you describe is perfectly normal, and is probably due to the stress of being moved. These geraniums tend to be fairly short lived, and take two years to flower, often dying in their third year. They are impressive plants though, and have been awarded the AGM so are well worth the effort.

Hope this helps! Don’t forget to add to your ‘plants I have’ list to receive regular care instructions: Geranium maderense.

gerenium maderense

Question from TESSA WYATT

In forum: General

I have a geranium maderense which came by mail order. Other than the fact that it is frost tender so should over winter in the greenhouse, I am not sure what to expect. Does it drop its leaves in the winter, some of them are yellowish now.
