A curious species, often confused in cultivation with Geranium phaeum lividum. The flowers of the true species have
narrow petals that reflex like a shuttlecock as they mature.
In gardens it hybridises with G.phaeum to produce G.x monacense.
I bought it from the nursery at East Lambrook Mamor last year, after years trying to obtain a genuine stock.
