Flowering period: June to September

Masses of small flowers appear for a long period from midsummer above the deeply divided foliage forming an attractive carpet of colour. Each purple-pink flower petal is paler at its base and fades again to near-white around its edge creating a lovely bi-coloured effect. They are also attractively threaded with darker coloured veins throughout. In autumn the normally green foliage turns attractive shades of red before it dies off. This is an easy to grow cranesbill that becomes drought tolerant with age and looks great spilling over the edges of a path or the front of a bed.Garden care: In mid to late summer rejuvenate plants that are beginning to look jaded by removing old flower stems and leaves. Lift and divide large colonies in spring.
