Mountain Cranesbill 'Bill Wallis'


A long-flowering variety, Geranium pyrenaicum 'Bill Wallis' (Cranesbill) is a sprawling perennial which produces a great profusion of vivid purple-blue flowers with deeply notched petals.

  • Grows up to 18 in. tall (45 cm) and spreads up to 24 in. (60 cm). This Geranium seeds readily and will fill in bare spots.
  • Performs best in full sun or part shade, in average, light to medium moisture, well-drained soils. Drought and heat tolerant once established.
  • Attractive to butterflies, but deer and rabbit resistant!
  • Great addition to beds and borders, underplanting shrubs and roses. Perfect for rock gardens, cottage gardens or containers. Effective ground cover.
  • Watch for vine weevil, sawflies, powdery mildew or downy mildew
  • Remove flowered stems and old leaves to encourage the production of fresh leaves and flowers.
  • Propagate by division between autumn and early spring or cut back plants after flowering in summer then divide, replant and water well
