A commercial hybrid, this pretty Cranesbill - hardy Geranium has large flowers of pale pink which are heavily veined and netted in dark red.  It grows to around 45-65cm (18in-2ft) high on thin straggly stems with fairly deeply cut leaves of three lobes.

Apparently a recent introduction in the commercial market, being excellent for ground cover in sun or shade with a long flowering period.  The plants found in Brickfields Park are garden escapees from vegetative rubbish dumped in the park by residents.
