Green and creased... but what is it?!
The sinus and central radial veins of a Gunnera?
Darmera peltata ?
No, not Gunnera and not Darmera... this plant is smaller... :)
Definitely a leaf.
No, it's a hardy perennial...
Wow, brilliant idea!!! :))) But species ID please...
Pelargonium? One of the ones with the lemon-scented leaves?
Geranium? The dark pink one by the front door, the rest of whose name I can't remember?
For me, pelargoniums are not hardy, nor perennial, in fact they look at me and die, so I don't bring them home any more.
G. reynardii? Which is white in flower, but I'm sure I've got another with a similar less divided leaf than most geraniums that is pink. They're not all flowering yet.
Yes, congratulations! It's a Geranium... I'm not 100% sure which one, but I think it's a G. renardii!
Well I never! Lorax's pelargonium suggestion pointed me in the right direction, and I grow about 20 different hardy geraniums, I do love them so.
I love pelargoniums too, but my house is rather dark, and they don't thrive.
It looks like my G. Philippe Vapelle which I believe is a cross of G. renardii with G. platypetalum. It has greener leaves than G. renardii and a pale bluey mauve flower.
