    820B1E86-645C-4480-A76C-37A65E80CB91.jpegDC9ACAEF-92E9-4FE6-91BB-145671B71389.jpeg It’s not a geranium @Zigs it is a mallow or perhaps a pink form of Evening Primrose.I have got one growing in my front garden which has both white and pink flowers off of the same plant.Dont know where the seeds came from,think it was from the wild bird seed as I know I never bought a plant like this but it is still in flower and has been all through the summer.I just chucked the washing up water on it to keep it going.You should be able to collect seeds off of it if you are lucky:smile:

    This is mine but the leaves look different to your leaves but the seed is not of a hardy geranium as I have already collected some and they are the shape of the moon with a bite taken out of it:biggrin:

        Think you're right, should have listened to Tetters, she said Mallow too :doh:

        Went back and took a few more shots, leaves exhibit polymorphism too :)

          Its OK Ziggs I confused a geranium with a mallow in the ID section a few days ago.:biggrin:

          You cant beat a bit of polymorphism, that's what I always say.:biggrin:
