As a comment about Cranesbill (Geranium wlassovianum), kqcrna wrote:

Geranium wlassovianum has been blooming since May, even in exceptional heat and drought here. Most of the summer it has been covered with blossoms without any deadheading or trimming. Blossoms are medium purple, very similar in color to Geranium Rozanne. It maintains a neater look than my Geranium Rozanne due to exceptionally pretty foliage. Mine were wintersown during winter 2010-2011.

Foliage takes on a red shade during fall.

I have this lovely Geranium, but have been unable to find seeds on this plant. I thought this plant was sterile.

I read some where else that it does set seeds. Does any one has experience with seeds on this Geranium?

Hello Karen

Thank you for your message. I did read on Robs plant site also that this geranium sets seeds. I have never seen any seeds on my Geranium. Maybe I have an other Geranium or don't look at the right time. I love this Geranium as it blooms rather late in the season and the leaves are beautifull.
