To swap with Alison Clark

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

Lots of large offsets from an overcrowded clump. I sometimes put it in the pond, which it loves, and have also had it crammed into a dry corner.

    Particularly like good leaves and already have an extensive collection of ferns. I'm trying to get Geranium Bill Wallis to establish as a weed because it is so pretty and its colour enhances most other plants
