Set B2 - Wild Flowers - card information

12. Blood-red Cranesbill
(Geranium sanguineum L.)

12. Blood-red Cranesbill

This handsome wild geranium is found chiefly towards the north of England and in Scotland. It prefers a well-drained soil and makes a bold display on some of the limestone mountains in Yorkshire and elsewhere. The leaves are roughly orbicular in outline, divided almost to the base into five or seven segments. The purplish - crimson flowers, an inch and a half in diameter, grow separately on long thin stalks.
