Geranium phaeum Samobor

Dusky Cranesbill Samobor

An excellent cultivar of the mourning widow or dusky cranesbilll, Geranium phaeum Samobor is a herbaceous, clump-forming perennial. The large, lobed, deep-green leaves, which take on a purple colour in autumn, are handsomely marked with a brownish-purple crescent, giving ground-cover interest throughout the growing season. In May and June, sprays of single, deep maroon, nodding flowers, the petals curved back to reveal the stamens, are borne on upright stems above the foliage. An excellent plant for pollinators. Dusky cranesbill Samobor tolerates full shade, and also full sun if the soil is reliably moist, and looks lovely as part of a woodland planting. Cut back after flowering to revive the plant.
