Pretty pink flowers with darker veins on this form collected by Janis Ruksans from the Talish Mountains in southern Azerbaijan. Drained soil in full sun, summer dormant. 20cm.

Ideal for a sunny rockery or scree though it'll work well in a sunny border in well drained soil too.  Geranium macrostylum has slim tubers which it will die back to in the hotter and drier months of the summer and re-grow in late autumn making a patch of deeply divided leaves all winter ahead of the spring flowers.

The small roots can be disturbed by over enthusiastic weeding etc causing the plant to be accidentally spread around the garden so don't be too keen when weeding!

Named 2003.
