This is not a geranium

In a slightly misguided moment at knitting on Wednesday, the conversation devolved into a game of “guess that houseplant.” I have a plant that I got at the grocery store with pink flowers on long stalks. I keep forgetting to water it, and on the next sunny day it wilts and looks dead, and then I water it in a fit of obtuseness and the thing spits out new leaves and flowers — I love it. We’ve been doing this for nearly a year now. The group decided by consensus that it was a geranium. I’m confident it’s not.

Here it is… You can see that it ‘s been through a drought and lost most of its leaves, but there are two more buds in the back so not too much harm done.

So, all-wise knitters… now that you have a visual, what kind of flower is this? 🙂

  1. FYI, they grow wild in Jerusalem, and are all over the Garden Tomb. It was beautiful.

  2. Beat me to it! I’ve had two and managed to kill them both. I don’t usually do that to house plants.
