Bloody Cranes Bill Geranium sanguineum Plant

A hardy Geranium, sun loving Bloody Crane's Bill is the most popular of them all. Blooms for months with no care at all. In autumn the leaves turn red adding to the plant's vibrance.

These fantastic perennials were not very well-known in North America until recent years, but have always been a favorite group in Europe. Now, American gardeners have really embraced them, and cant get enough. Far different from windowbox geraniums, which are in a totally different botanical group, the hardy geraniums are tough perennials that bring to gardens what every gardener wants: compact plants with beautiful flowers and a long season of bloom.

Some bloom longer than others, but basically, long bloom is one big advantage of the hardy geraniums. A common name across all the species is Cranes Bill which refers to the sharp-pointed seed pod after flowering.

Geranium sanguineum is often referred to as bloody geranium. The reason for this is because of its red flower color and its leaves turning into shades or red in the fall.
While that may not seem like a nice imagery, the resulting plants are wonderful to look at during this time of year. Thus, many growers have this beautiful flowering plant.
They typically grow to about a foot to just under 2 feet tall and grow in clumps spreading to about 24 inches wide. Their blooms can vary from 1 to 1.5 inches in diameter. And, you’ll see them during May to October.

The plant is currently growing in a one gallon container, but will be shipped with the roots wrapped in damp paper towels and with plastic and ready to plant upon arrival. The plant will be between 5” to 6” in height. Planting guidelines will also be included.
