  • Description

  • Notes

This handsome perennial cranesbill has beautifully veined, soft pink flowers over slightly glossy, lobed foliage. Small pink, cup shaped flowers bloom in late spring to early summer. Leaves turn a lovely red in the fall. This plant reaches 12 to 18 inches tall and 18 inches wide. Endres' cranesbill is useful as a small area groundcover, or to fill in at the feet of larger perennials or shrubs.
Grow in full sun to part shade in well drained soils. Does well in dry shade conditions, Tolerant of sandy or clay soils. If the flowers seem to wane with the summer heat, cut the plant back hard and it may bloom again when the temperatures begin to drop in late summer.
