Geranium wallichianum 'crystal lake'


Geranium wallichianum 'crystal lake'

I bought this last year, but have lost the label. Anyone know what it is called? I think it has Geranium wallichianum as one of its parents.UPDATE: it appears to be called G.wallichianum 'crystal lake'. Goodness knows where I bought it from! I will be looking to collect some seed from it.

A bit of internet checking and it is a G.wallichianum type.
It is a very low plant with spreading stems like G.wallichianum.

This is beautifully marked Gdad, is it white with purple striations? And does it continually bloom?

Its only started to flower yesterday. There are plenty of un-opened buds on it. It is white with a hint of purple and dark purple markings. I think I bought it from a garden centre near Boston, Lincs.
