It's beautiful. An ivy leaf geranium.

They don't go dormant and they're not temperate zone perennials.

If you have this critter brown and lifeless in your living room......it's dead.

Buy a new one. Put it in the pretty pot. Be happy.

So I've been holding on to this dead plant with dead hope and dreams?

I guess I'll have to buy another one, because I loved it soo much.

Another question: could it have survived winter indoors? I am still trying to figure out what I did wrong. It was doing well until December.

Thanks

Welllll, it could have survived indoors, yes.

Really, there's no telling exactly why it died from my side of the computer.

It's ok, really. In the spring the nurseries are full of beautiful little flowers and you can buy a new one and you'll love it as much as you did the last one. Don't fret.

The 1st of May I received two Wisteria trees, from two different online nursery, that look dead. It is June 10th and still look dead, however its branches are flexible and under the bark is green. What should I do?

Call the companies from whom you bought them.

Geraniums grown indoors need sun! I had 4 beautiful pots of geraniums that lived for 23 years in a bay window, and they came with the house when we bought it, so I don't know how old they were. I gave them away when we moved. Whenever they started looking leggy (the leaves at the bottom of a branch would wither and fall off, and it kept just growing longer) I would just cut the branch just above a joint and in a short time it would be sprouting again. I also frequently took those nice cuttings, trimmed the length and took off the leaves at the bottom, and just stuck them in the soil of the pot. This kept the plants nice and full. Add fertilizer a couple times a year, water when dry. Easy plants. But they need sun. I'm not sure your spot could have given them any direct light. And yes, if there is no green, living plant, the whole thing is dead. These plants have no dormancy.
