Geraniaceae (family name)
Forage for pollinators: Pollen and Nectar is produced, and though visited by more than 100 insect species, the main pollinators are Short and Long-tongued Bumblebees, Honeybees and Wasps.
Flowering time: June, July, August, September.
Growing information: NATIVE PERENNIAL WILDFLOWER growing to 1.2 m (4ft) and hardy to minus 28ºC. These ‘hardy Geraniums’ are not remotely related to the Pelargoniums (which go by the common name of Geranium – yet are neither native nor hardy). Prefers damp meadow grassland. This beautiful wildflower, now sadly lacking in our once wildflower-laden countryside, produce generous amounts of large bluish-lilac flowers for a very long period. We suggest you re-introduce them to your more wild parts of the garden and let them self-seed where they can.
