Distinguishing Feature :

It is the cultivated hybrid between : Caucasian Crane's-bill (Geranium ibericum) (which is only rarely grown in gardens) and Glandular Crane's-bill (Geranium platypetalum) (which has violet-blue flowers which are directed sidewards [rather than upwards]). Both of these are Introduced-Naturalised plants, unlike the hybrid itself which is native in grassland, rocky places sand dunes and open-woods on calcareous soils usually near the coast; but naturalised from gardens elsewhere into the wild.
