Meadow Crane's Bill (Geranium pratense) HP/BB/BN
A most handsome crane's bill bearing rich, purple-blue (or occasionally white) blooms in summer. It is now rare in the wild, being a victim of agricultural intensification, but it can be found in some numbers here in the Peak District growing in the roadside verges. In the garden in well-cultivated soil it grows much larger than in the wild. Ht 1-2.5ft. Grows well in sun or semi-shade.
