Set B6 - Wild Flowers Series 2 - card information

39. Herb Robert (Geranium robertianum L.)

39. Herb Robert

Herb Robert is a cheerful little plant, its fern-like leaves, red stems and pink flowers gracing many an old dry-stone wall and dry bank. In Autumn when the plant may still be in flower it becomes increasingly attractive for some of the leaves turn bright red, especially in those which grow on stone walls. It blooms from May to September. It is a Cranesbill and has the beaked seed heads characteristic of the family.
