[This is the edited/rewritten form of a record formerly used for Pelargonium, a half-hardy annual, often erroneously called geranium, or –storksbill.” Confusion between the two is very common. What I think we should be carrying is this plant, which is a true perennial in our zone.]
Hardy geranium, or cranesbill--not to be confused with annual pelargonium, or storksbill--is very useful as a front-border or groundcover plant. It grows from a thick rhizome. The name –crane's bill” comes from the appearance of the fruit capsule before springing.
