Geranium sanguineum, common names bloody crane's-bill or bloody geranium, is a species of hardy flowering herbaceous perennial plant in the cranesbill family Geraniaceae. It is also the county flower of Northumberland. The biological form of Geranium sanguineum is hemicryptophyte, as its overwintering buds are situated just below the soil surface and the floral axis is more or less erect with a few leaves. It has a thick rhizome. The stems are prostrate to ascending, well developed, very branched and hairy. This plant reaches on average 30–50 centimetres (12–20 in) in height. The petiolate leaves have five lobes (or segments), each segment is tripartite in large teeth. The flowers have a diameter of 2.5 to 4 cm, and are purple.  The flowering period extends from May through October. The flowers are hermaphrodite and pollinated by insects (entomophily). The most common flower visitors are Syrphidae and Hymenoptera, but also butterflies and Coleoptera. The fruit is a schizocarp that breaks up into five mericarps when ripe.

    Sowing; Sow in Late winter/late spring or late summer/autumn. Sow seed 2.5cm (1in) apart in a peaty mix compost. If starting seed in a seed-tray, choose one with really deep cells. The seedlings need a lot of root room to get started.

    “Just cover” the seeds with sieved compost. Seed will germinate in germinate in less than two weeks. Prick out each seedling as it becomes large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays.

    After the last expected frosts, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10 to 15days before planting out into their permanent positions.

    Space the plants 22 to 30cm (9 to 12in) apart.

    Cultivation; Geranium sanguineum are best planted in poor, well-drained soil in full sun but will tolerate most soils in full sun and can tolerate partial shade

    Deadhead to prevent self-seeding, if preferred. When the clump gets too large, simply lift the plant in spring (March to May) and divide into smaller pieces. A prolific self-seeder, it is best to cut off seed heads before they mature.
