Palest pink flowers, with deep pink veins, reflexed like a cyclamen above broad light green leaves. Compact, for humusy soil in shade, or open position. 40cm. Spring.
One of our favourite cranesbills this southern European native has proved to be much better garden value and easier to grow than some people told us!
Tidy clumps of soft, hairy, leaves provide a good foil for masses of the cyclamen-like flowers from mid spring until midsummer in most years. It will self-seed gently (ie not enough) when it is happy. Seems to grow best in drained, but not dry, soil in part shade and has seeded into the edge of our driveway and grown happily in the road-planings before! In the wild it will be found growing on stoney slopes in open woodland alongside Hellebores and Cyclamen, so if you can grow those well you should find Geranium aristatum grows well too.
Semi-evergreen most winters, it benfits from being cut hard back in late winter. Hardy.
Like 'Brookside' but with darker blue flowers, 5cm across. The stuff of myth! Average soil in sun, 70cm. Summer with good repeat and super foliage colour in autumn.
Masses of small blue flowers in spring. Alan Bremner's hybrid: a compact clump of leaves and the myriad of flowers are held erect for weeks in late spring. Open or light shade, not too dry. 70cm.

(sanguineum 'Ankum's Pride' x psilostemon)
