This geranium was grown from seed marked schlecteri but it does not come close to any of Yeos descriptions. The flowers remind me of a paler PUlchrum but the foliage and habit is all wrong. I managed to get it through the winter in a cold greenhouse ok and it seems hardy enough.

Here is the foliage. It seems to have avery open habit and is happiest growing up through other plants. Pruning only produces more stems from the bottom.
