Someone gave me this Geranium and I don't know which one it is. It gets a white bloom on it and grows about 16" tall in a nice round mound. No flowers on it at the moment.
I'm not that familiar with geraniums so any help is appreciated !

Edited to add that the new foliage starts out a distict lime green then gets darker.

I'm no expert, but it looks very much like a scented geranium. What does the leaf smell like, especially when you bruise a bit of leaf in your fingers? It may be one of the rose-scented varieties.

I have similar leaves on some of my G. phaeum's, both Springtime and Samobor, but they have dark purple flowers. There are pictures of the leaves of those two in plantfiles, I think. Definitely a hardy geranium.

No scent at all to the foliage, but I did post this in the regular Plant ID forum.
Someone corrrectly identified it as a variation of Geranium x oxonianum.
I like the burgundy coloration in the leaves.

Thanks for the help !
