Product description

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Pearl-grey, saucer-shaped flowers, with pale grey stripes on the petals appear in summer among finely cut mid-green leaves. This exquisite meadow cranesbill is one of the tallest and most vigorous hardy geraniums. It is ideal for the front of a sunny border though it can also cope with a fairly shady spot. Try it in a wildflower meadow too, where it can self-seed freely.

  • Garden care: In midsummer rejuvenate plants that are beginning to look jaded, by removing old flowered stems and leaves. Lift and divide large colonies in spring.

“An upright cranesbill with lilac-blue flowers heavily veined in lighter silver grey - a shimmering acquisition - and a real presence in summer”
