Geranium sanguineum (Bloody Cranesbill) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because germination can be slow and irregular. I suggest sowing them outdoors in late fall to midwinter, about 1/4 inch deep, and setting the pot in a spot protected from mice, so the seeds can get a period of cold and then germinate when conditions are right in spring.

If you sow in late winter to late spring, you could try giving the pot an artificial chilling period of about 2 months.

It’s possible that these seeds could germinate if sown in moderately warm, bright conditions; it may take 4 to 6 weeks or longer, however, and the germination percentage may be lower than with a chilling period.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

In stock


Bloody cranesbill (Geranium sanguineum) grows in low, gently spreading mounds typically around 1 foot tall, making it ideal for edging beds, borders, or walkways. In late spring to early summer, the mounds are covered with bowl-shaped, bright pinkish purple blooms. Shearing the plants back by about half after the flowers are done removes the seedheads and tidies the plants, but if you let the seeds form, you are likely to find self-sown seedlings. In fall, the deeply lobed, rich green leaves turn shades of red, sometimes with some yellow or orange. Full sun to partial shade. Perennial; Zones 3 to 9.

Collected in early July 2023. Each packet contains at least 15 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
