Geranium sessiliiflorum x traversii 'Sea-Spray'

Geranium x 'Seaspray'
 It's sea-spray of the the wild north of Scotland variety which is where this little Geranium hails from; the Orkney Islands to be precise, a place with a climate tempered by the Gulf Stream which means it stays consistently cool but not freezing. Ground hugging as a defense against wind and with pale pink flowers on short stems and pewter coloured scalloped leaves this is a delightful garden plant for a partly shaded garden spot or as a hardy pot plant which can cope with drying out.
I grew this many years ago and have decided to give it another go because the colour combination of the foliage and flowers is quite unique.
