A lovely sprawling perennial with small dark green leaves and pure white clusters of perfectly formed flowers in the summer. Also known as the 'bloody crane's-bill' for the crane like appearance of the fruit capsules in the spring, Sanguineum refers to the red shading that the leaves assume in the winter. The Royal Horticultural Society has given Sanguineum Alba their Award of Garden Merit for its reliable performance, stability of colour and form and good resistance to pests and diseases. A low maintenance ground cover plant, good for under-planting at the front of the border, for best results where it will get plenty of sun although it will tolerate partial shade. In the wild it's found in sand dunes and on rocky slopes so unsurprisingly it dislikes overly moist soils and will do better in any well drained moderately fertile soil. Supplied as first grade loose root plants.
