Geranium robertianum   Herb Robert CC DD N

Geranium robertianum pink Geranium robertianum white

This is supposed to be a hedgerow plant but is such a successful invader of waste land, edges gutters and gardens that it is considered a weed by gardeners. Usually it has pink flowers, hairs on the stem and leaves and quite a strong smell. It often has red tinged leaves and stems. Occasionally you find pure white flowers.

It is found throughout the British Isles and is one of our commonest plants.
