Geranium palustre


A low-growing, clump-forming perennial forming bushy hummocks of fresh green, deeply divided leaves. Flowers are borne on thin stems rising from a central rootstock and are bright pink, trumpet-shaped at first then almost starry when the wide-open, wedge-shaped petals become separated.

Repotting or planting

Remove the plant from the pot, and plant in damp ground, in a hole deep enough to accommodate the root ball.
