G.lambertii seems to have added this non rooting ability to the cross. It's also added more separated petals. I'm not sure where the golden tinge to new foliage has come from - but this is certainly an added bonus.

This is a gem of a plant that I'm sorely tempted to add to plantings in the rear garden. I won't - but for the best of all reasons. There is a similar - and equally well behaved geranium - 'Ann Folkard' - which can perform exactly the same function but with darker, more tightly compressed flowers. This is another hybrid of G.procurrens, this time with G.psilostemon. This is better adapted to the sunnier site I have in mind to repeat the effect.
