Geranium sanguineum

 

Bloody Cranesbill

Geraniums are hardy and mainly perennial and are used in a number of garden situations such as ground cover or rockery plants. Geraniums are easily grown and can transform problem places such as dry shade, hot sunny banks or moist shade. This semi-evergreen perennial plant is happy to grow in most aspects from full sun to dappled shade. Growing to approximately 10" (25 cm) tall, it is literally smothered with rosy-purple-pink flowers all summer long.
