This attractive, clump-forming, Eurasian native is an old favorite in the British cottage garden. John Gerard called it “Bloody Cranes-bill” in his Herbal, 1633 edition, and wrote that it was one of the “wild cranes-bills” that he cultivated. Shirley Hibbert’s The Amateur’s Flower Garden, 1871, also considered this species one of the best. In the 1835 edition of the Horticultural Register, American garden writer J. E. Teschemacher recommended the “bloody geranium” for the rock garden. This plant is not attractive to deer.
