Geranium colmbinum 1 Geranium colmbinum 2

This plant is mostly found on calcareous soils and has deeply cut leaves like G. dissectum (Cut-leaved Crane's-bill). It can grow up to half a metre tall and often has twin flowers on the end of the long stalks.

G. columbinum is common in the south of England and south Wales but records diminish as you get into the north of England. It is dotted here and there in southern Scotland but there is little in the far north. In Ireland it is mostly found in the south east.
