Long-flowering, spreading cranesbill. It makes for a blowsy, somewhat messy mound of leaves and dancing flowers, more a wildflower or cottage look. The flowers (white on the variety we grow, but with dusky pink features) are small but intricate; the leaves have an overall round, tidy shape.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
