This small, hardy perennial has thrived for five years in a pot in my shade garden. I have no idea what it is. Delicate flowers the size of my thumbnail grow on long stalks from a basal cluster of geranium-like leaves. (Leaves can be seen here.)

This planting is in the Container garden .

Looks like a Geranium to me maybe one of the forms of x oxonianum but I’m not sure since there are a lot of them.

The leaves and habit are certainly geranium-like, but I’ve been unable to find a geranium with this form of flower. But you’re right, there are so many of them they can be hard to nail down.

I just found a Geranium hybrid that has a similar flower form to yours Geranium x oxonianum ‘sue cox’ The color doesn’t seem right to me but it might something similar.
