Hi everyone, looking for geranium knowledge.......

Please see pictures of pale blue geranium in my garden.

It's quite pretty, but I'm sure I didn't plant something this colour - or maybe I did!

It has leaves and is leggy like Brookside. ( have some of that planted nearby).

It looks to me like its some sort of mutant? Does this happen to geraniums?

Can anybody identify it?

thanks

Thank you very much!

It's so icy pale blue but with the same leaves I thought it was maybe some sort of throwback/mutant of Brookside.

So is it a wildflower that's found its way into my garden?
Lovely!

Meadow cranesbill (Geranium pratense) is prone to producing varieties, pale blue, white or even striped, some of them named garden varieties eg Mrs Kendall Clark.
