This tall dusky cranesbill, Geranium phaeum Samobor (also known as Geranium phaeum var. phaeum Samobor), is an upright hardy perennial. A variety of G. phaeum, the British native, G. Samobor is often grown for its attractive maroon-zoned, deeply lobed deep green foliage, reminiscent of Pelargoniums. In late spring and early summer this hardy geranium has sprays of slightly nodding, dark burgundy-purple flowers with recurved petals, held aloft above the handsome mound of leaves. The flowers are attractive to pollinating insects.
An excellent plant for partial shade, especially in dry conditions, but it also tolerates full shade and full sun.
