These two plants Geranium libani and Geranium malviflorum always brighten up the winter days. Snow and cold bother them very little. They start growth in the fall in both my garden and in pots and just keep growing all winter. The plants in my garden were buried under snow so..
Well I suppose I have been through Woodinville on my way out to visit friends who lived in Monroe. Anyway I live a few miles east of Corvallis out in the country not. Both those plants are initiating flower buds now, down near the soil surface. I use these and a few G. phaeums that flower early along my front walk in the spring.
