Geranium palustre

marsh cranesbill

5 year guarantee Perfect for pollinators
9cm pot £8.99

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moisture-retentive soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Forming a spreading leafy clump, which over a long period in summer, is crowned with a mass of bright pink flowers, this cranesbill lends itself well to a variety of different settings. Tolerant of both modertely wet or dry soils, it makes a fine addition to a naturalised planting scheme - and can even be paired with ornamental grasses.

  • 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.
