Plant Finder: about Geranium renardii

Common names

Cranesbill

Description

Geranium renardii (Cranesbill). This perennial species will produce interesting foliage rather than flowers. The leaves are beautiful, velvety silver-green and up to 4ins across. They are divided into bluntly lobed segments. In the spring white, veined with purple blooms will appear in small clusters.

Cultivation

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. During the growing season, water freely and apply a balanced liquid fertilizer monthly. Water sparingly in winter.

Interest and use
