Cranesbill is a genus comprising of about 300 species. It is commonly used as a ground-covering perennial which can quickly form a respectable carpet. When in full bloom it offers a solid, one-colour show which in mass plantings looks stunning. Thanks to low growth it mostly finds its place under trees and shrubs, as well as in mixed borders along with other perennials.

Ashy cranesbill is a dwarf cranesbill species from the Pyrenees. Ballerina is a an eye-catching variety with lilac pink flowers with prominent, deep burgundy red veins and eye in the centre. They are borne atop short and somewhat trailing stems from late May until late July, and sparsely throughout the summer. The leaves are evergreen, palmate, somewhat greyish green, and deeply lobed. It naturally forms small, mounded cushions, and we recommend planting 3 or more plants together for better display.

Ashy cranesbill is a sun-loving species that needs free-draining soil and does not tolerate wet ground. Grow it in full sun or just light shade in sandy, loam-based soil. It is hardy to min. -29°C (USDA zone 5), possibly a few degrees lower, and it is suitable for outdoor pots.
