Garden Context: Sunny South-facing Garden in North London, UK. Appers not hugely cared-for in the last decade.

Border Context: This photo is taken facing about North-North-East: enter image description here

My experience: Almost None! This is my First garden and I'm just learning the ropes.

I've started weeding through the over grown borders of the garden and left behind some plants I didn't recognise.

I vaguely reminds me of etoilated Pelargonia? But beyond that it looks like a pretty generic small plant.

What is it?

(No idea what sort of search terms to try.)

  • FYI, the plant in the background of the border photo is a (falling over) aquilegia.

  • Hard to tell until it flowers; there are multiple types of plant with leaves like that. Perhaps a cranesbill of some kind? May 28, 2020 at 14:45
  • @VinceBowdren it did indeed turn out to be a cranesbill / creeping geranium - something like Dragonheart. Do you want to make that an answer, to earn internet points?

    I suspect you did more work on getting the ID ... I mean ... I left it alone for several months and then google 'cranesbill' once it flowered :) But sure - I'll put up photos next time it flowers.

Turns out this flowered into something closely resembling a "Dragonheart" Cranesbill / Creeping Geranium.

Photos will follow, in summer.
