Geranium - Crane's Bill.
- Starting at: $0.00 - Out of stock
The Geranium 'Crane's Bill', Geranium sanguineum, is a hardy clump-forming perennial that produces rose-cerise colored flowers in late spring. (Also known as Bloody Cranesbill).
This plant requires minimal care. Providing well-drained soil is beneficial, and it is at home in almost any soil as along as its well drained. It needs to be planted in an area of full sun to partial shade and also must be cut down, after flowering, almost all the way to the ground.
It is best to pinch rather heavily after flowering to encourage blooming throughout the summer. 'Crane's Bill' is actually an attractive plant all season, in or out of bloom. The foliage is usually more distinctly cut than other geraniums, giving it a delicate appearance.
'Crane's Bill' can be a very useful weed smothering, tight knit, ground cover. In a border or a rock garden, it is a lovely plant and striking when grown along a wall, with the stems and flowers tumbling over the edge!
Geraniums are self seeding, fairly adaptable to short periods of dry conditions, and are free from pests and diseases.
Geranium sanguineum spreads less quickly than Geranium endressii and really requires little to no care; very attractive to bees.
* Low maintenance
* Clumping habit
