|Distant offspring of 'Splish Splash' |
I received seed in a trade one year for 'Splish Splash', and got a good number of seedlings. Planted them all in a row along our driveway, expecting the promised white-and-blue-splashed flowers - but when they bloomed the next year, some were plain white, others plain blue. Still, they were nice enough, and we kept them around. They get some of the worst conditions our garden offers (hot, dry, probably also some salt), yet most of them have survived.

Want to make sure that what I just pulled up from neighbor's yard is in fact a meadow geranium. Do they have a taproot?
If I recall, they have fleshy roots, but not a single strong taproot. I'm away from my garden this season, so I'm afraid I can't check for you.
