Description

Height x Spread: 30cm x 40cm

This ankle-high 'bloody cranesbill' forms a carpet of finely cut dark green leaves studded with delicate upward-looking pale pink flowers with darker pink veins.

Lauded for its long flowering period from summer into the autumn, it is a superb ground cover plant, successfully suppressing weeds.  It looks particularly attractive sprawling over the edge of a path or framed in a gravel garden.  A veritable bee magnet. It prefers a free-draining soil in full sun, but can tolerate partial shade too.
