Neutral coriaceous On Nov 9, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

A mounding perennial that looks like G. sanguineum to me. It gets 2-3' wide.

'Blushing Turtle' is a hybrid between an unnamed seedling selection of Geranium sanguineum (female parent) and either Geranium x oxonianum 'Julie Brennan' or an unnamed selection of Geranium asphodeloides.
