Plant Finder: about Geranium sylvaticum

Common names

Crow flower, Wood cranesbill

Description

Geranium sylvaticum (Crow flower). This species is an upright, clump-forming perennial about 75cm tall with deeply divided basal leaves. Branching stems carrying bluish purple, cup-shaped flowers with white centres which are produced from late spring to summer.

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.
