Purple Cranesbill Geranium

Purple Cranesbill Geranium (Geranium × magnificum) is a five-petalled purple flower. It was cultivated from a cross between Geranium platypetalum and Geranium ibericum, although it looks more like a petunia than a typical geranium. The Purple Cranesbill Geranium blooms vibrant, dark, violet-blue flowers with dark blue veins. Though the flower is very prolific in early summer, it has quite a short flowering season (June to August in the United Kingdom).

The Purple Cranesbill Geranium has received the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit for its resistance to pests, quality of constitution and excellence for ordinary use.

The plants grow in well drained soil, in the sun or partial shade. Cultivation of the Purple Cransebill Geranium needs only beginner gardener skills and the plants require just an hour of care a year. They take between two and five years to reach maturity. See this handy map for a list of UK suppliers of the Purple Cranesbill Geranium.
