E.variabile is a hybrid of probably E.reichardii and E.corsicum. Said to
be at risk in hard winters in the UK, not a problem here in Melbourne,Aus.
I have found E.petraeum a bit touchy so if I were you I would figure on
babying them both at least through your first winter. Next year you should
have had the opportunity to raise a couple of back up plants and so then
into the garden they go
Geraniaceae is all around the World
