Another cranesbill, similar to many others we grow. This one is a hybrid of G. endressii and G. versicolor. Its pink flowers are patterned with darker veins. In our garden, it doesn't grow taller than 18" - so it makes a good front-of-the-border plant for our rambunctious back yard island.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
