Yep, I agree on the wild geranium. I have some as well.
I've never seen the other one before, so gardencrazy is probably right.

I didn't know geraniums were perennials.

Duh touched Now that I think about it - aren't they called "hardy geraniums"? :/

Thanks!

Helping the world one seed at a time

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. Mary Ann LaPensee

Are my Lilys up yet? I have some ready to pop out.
The smaller ones are ahead of the taller ones.
I hope they grew.. Mine all did.

These are bachelor's buttons? Coneflower - did you mean cornflower?

The wild geranium - will that only bloom one time? They are done now, if I pinch back, will it bloom again?

wonderful.......My first color to bloom is the Orangish yellow.. They are always first......then the others follow......

I was suprised the little fellows bloomed ahead of mom plants.
Now your on your way with them......One of the easiest to grow.

Love to see the photos.

it should,If I have the right plant in mind--My MIL always puts 1 or 2 of the plants out in pots---she just pinches back the old blooms & new ones come.

For some reason, mine takes real long to grow..Pinch or not it doesnt live up to the stuff of the other types.

I have the second one in my garden, but I thought it was called "lambs ears" the leaves are soft and fuzzy, and they self-spread like crazy!
