This perennial herbacious plant has always been growing in my garden, and attracts many different species of bee. It was here when I moved in 24 years ago, and it still flourishes. It generally has a short flowering season in June, but the violet-blue flowers are beautiful whilst they last.
This distinctive crane’s-bill makes a beautiful border plant, but maybe found growing wild on verges and in hedgerows, meadows and pastures.
