Position: full sun or partial shade
Soil: fertile, well-drained
Rate of Growth: average
Flowering period: June to August

Large deep blue, saucer-shaped flowers with distinctive white centres from June to September among deeply divided mid-green leaves. This lovely cranesbill is a comparatively recent introduction, valued for its intense blue blooms and long-flowering season. It's excellent for supressing weeds at the front of a mixed or herbaceous border or as part of a blue colour-themed scheme. Garden care: In midsummer rejuvenate plants that are beginning to look jaded, by removing old flowered stems and leaves. Lift and divide large colonies in spring.
