PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Geranium sanguineum, magenta
Bloody cranesbill
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Hardy
Flowering period Late spring-summer
Height 12in/30cm
Light preference Shade/part shade
Soil preference Any reasonable, well-drained soil
Sowing time/depth Autumn, Spring, Shallow
A very pretty low-growing hardy geranium. Bright magenta-pink flowers with a white eye and darker veining appear above finely divided foliage which has a tendency to trail. Although the plant is happy in full sun, it is useful for adding a touch of colour to areas in part-shade.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Very easy to grow from seed... just sow in autumn or spring, pressing the seed onto the surface of moist, good quality compost, barely covering with a little compost or fine vermiculite. Heat is not required for germination, so keep the sown pot in a cold frame or sheltered spot, potting seedlings on into individual pots and plant out when large enough.
