General Information

Geranium pratense

The cultivar name of this hardy geranium is 'Gerwat', but it is sold under the trade designation Geranium Rozanne.


Propagation is by semi-ripe cuttings in summer, by seed, or by division in autumn or spring.

The name "cranesbill" derives from the appearance of the fruit capsule of some of the species. Species in the Geranium genus have a type of mechanism produced by the pollinated flower. The mechanism is a beak-like column that springs open when ripe and casts the seeds some distance. The fruit capsule consists of five cells each containing one seed, joined to a column produced from the center of the old flower. The common name cranesbill comes from shape of the unsprung column, which in some species is long and looks like the bill of a crane. Many species in this genus do not have a long beak-like column. The genus name is derived from the Greek γέρανος, géranos, or γερανός, geranós, crane. The long, palmately cleft leaves are broadly circular in form. Their rose, pink to blue or white flowers have 5 petals.

"geranium" is also the common name of members of the genus Pelargonium.
Geranium has symmetrical flowers, while Pelargonium has irregular or maculate petals.
