MEASOW CRANESBILL


Another wildflower to be found on the old railway line to the east of town, this geranium is very tough, surviving in temperatures down to -20C in its homelands of the Altai mountains. Also, if for example roadside flowers have been cut down by mowers in June, the plant often produces a second flush of flowers in September. It is more abundant in Scandinavia, where it is called Midsommar Blomster – Midsummer Flower – because it can always be relied on to be flowering in time for their midsummer celebrations. Our name refers to the beak-like seed capsule.
