It's sure pretty whatever it is!

I doubt it's Patricia. Patricia is a very vivid purple with a dark eye, and yours seems more lavender.

Information on height and bloom time would be helpful in identifying it.

It's definately not Patricia. The leaves don't look like Rozanne. How about Johnson's Blue?

It makes me think a lot of a Geranium sylvaticum. I grow G. sylvaticum 'Meran' which is very very close to this, but several varieties have similar colours...

Could you post a clearer picture of the leaves? Sometimes they are easier to distinguish by the leaves than the flowers.
Could it possibly be Nimbus? The picture I have of that flower is similar, but has darker blue veins. I had the plant once, but think it died.

I'm sure this is G. sylvaticum.

Like zephirine, I think this is Geranium sylvaticum 'Meran' , G. sylvaticum 'Birgit Lion' or G. sylvaticum 'Birch Lilac'.

not sure what yours is judy, I have patricia, and it's not purple at all, it's hot pink with a almost black center. it doesn't have a bloom on it right now, but when it gets another I can send you a picture of it.
