 An outstanding Belgian introduction, this Cranesbill flowers for weeks on end. It forms a low, trailing mound of ferny-looking green leaves, bearing cup-shaped blooms of bright neon pink, with a narrow white edging and eye. Petals are streaked with deep rose pink. Excellent for edging a sunny border, also in rock gardens or mixed containers. Attractive when mass planted as a groundcover. Foliage turns bronzy-red in autumn. Plants are easily increased by dividing in the spring, if desired. More or less evergreen in mild winter regions, but prune back in early spring.
