Geranium pyrenaicum – Hedgerow Crane's-bill

There is some debate as to whether this species is a relative newcomer to the British Isles or a native those population and range has expanded within the last 200 years. Which ever it is it is now a familiar plant through much of the southern half of the country. Hedgerow Crane’s-bill is an attractive plant growing to a hight of 60cm and with mauve-pink flowers consisting of 5 deeply notched petals. Unlikely to be mistaken for any other Crane’s-bill except, possibly, for Geranium molle but that is smaller with pinker flowers. Flowers from June to August.
