Geranium macrorrhizum ‘Ingwersen's Variety’ (Balkan cranesbill). This compact, carpeting perennial which in late spring to early summer, has small, pale pink flowers. Fragrant glossy, light green leaves turn bronze-bright red in autumn.


They are fully to half hardy. Most species will prefer sun, but some do better in the shade. They will grow in any but waterlogged soil. Outdoors, grow larger species and hybrids in any moderately fertile, well-drained soil. Grow small species and hybrids in humus-rich, sharply drained soil in full sun. Under glass, grow half hardy species in loam-based potting compost with added sharp sand, in bright filtered light.
