How can you spot the difference between G maderense and G palmatum?
Essex, United Kingdom
I have grown for about 6 years what I thought was G maderense. The original plant is about 3' tall but it seeds about happily and all the babies I have potted up have grown on really well and quickly and flowered in the same year I have potted them up. Now I am wondering if in fact it is Geranium palmatum because it has survived outside with no protection, even getting through last winter which was awful. It is in a west facing border in decent soil. The flowers have a slightly darker centre but the stems aren't brown, which I am led to believe they should be.
