Geranium versicolor
(Map updated: March 2008)

This crane's-bill is a rare escape from cultivation in gardens, but was established for at least ninety years on a roadside hedgebank between Comber and Castle Espie in Co Down, up until the 1980s. The other records seem to refer to short-lived colonies.

All names: Geranium versicolor L.; Geranium striatum L.
