Purple Whatsis...

I was given three of these. Beautiful purple, somewhat trumpet shaped flowers. Deeply cut leaves, medium green, possibly somewhat furry leaves. The shrub forum sent me over here, with a guess that it's possibly a perennial geranium?

They look pretty ratty in their pot, but may get gorgeous in the ground, once I know what they need.

RE: Purple Whatsis...

It looks like it is that. Flower looks the same, leaf looks the same. Big and scraggly... Thanks, that helps me narrow down where the heck to plant it.

RE: Purple Whatsis...

i wasnt even close.. lol ...

i do note at the link above it says:

it is short lived in subtropical wet summer areas. USDA zones 9 - 10. [read the rest also]

so dont get to attached to it in your z7


RE: Purple Whatsis...

I'm not in zone 7 anymore. I fixed in my profile, but it's not showing up when I post. I'm in 9b/17 now. No idea why it doesn't show up properly when I post.....

So, they were free. I have 3. I'll plant them and see how they do, and enjoy them while they last.
