I am not quite sure what this really is, though it looks like on the the European species to me (a reckless opinion in the absence of anywhere else to start). It came to me from the AGS seed exchange under this name, so that's where it will remain for the moment.
The name is listed as a synonym of G.palustris - it is not quite like my stock of that species, but it is not so unlike it that it can be discounted. It is also listed as a form of G.carneus from South Africa, but I am not inclined to believe it is that!
Whatever it finally turns out to be, it has been vigorous in a pot, and will probably do well outside.
