Nice. I've thousands of the wild one in the garden but never seen this. Is it horticultural or a mutation in the wild?

Must be a natural mutation, it seeds exactly the same, happens more often in nature, pink and white or blue and white etc. The white and pink varieties exist next to each other without hybridizing into like a soft pink, or variegated colours!

Hmmm, I’ll pay more attention then. I may have overlooked it, amongst the many other little white flowers :).
Thanks for the tip.

I suggest you get yourself a few plants from a specialized nursery, i bought mine too many, 40 years ago i think, if you were in the neighbourhood i'd give you one! :)

Bruno and Fons - very nice Geraniums. Your images and discussion reminded me of a shot I took last year of geraniums in the dusk.

Many thanks, Fons. You and Bruno have inspired me - I have an old flower bed that is almost covered with with branches of an old Ivy and it would be nice to replace it with various Geraniums as groundcover :-)

Very nice color, Lars. I'm looking for colors like that but so far, only light blue specimens have survived more than a year or two in the garden.
Another one: Geranium phaeum. D500 300/4 PF

Geranium phaeum comes in many colours both in flower and leaves.
Here is a white variety.
