Geranium rotundifolium   Round-leaved Crane's-bill C DD N

Geranium rotundifolium close Geranium rotundifolium closer

Glandular hairs distinguish this Crane's-bill from other similar small-flowered and variable species such as G. molle (Dove's-foot Crane's-bills) because the rounded leaves in G. rotundifolium aren't particularly rounder than some other Crane's bills. The petals aren't notched.

G. rotundifolium is mostly found in the south and midlands of England with little elsewhere but I wonder whether these data need updating as it is definitely spreading quickly here in Cheshire.
