Bloody Cranesbill Growing and Maintenance Tips

Geranium sanguinuem needs an average to moist, well-drained soil. Tolerates hot, humid summers better than most geraniums. Plants spread by rhizomes and can form a nice, bushy, ground cover. Pruning the plant to half its height after flowering will encourage new growth and sporadic, fall rebloom.
