Ballerina Cranesbill has masses of beautiful shell pink flowers with indigo eyes and purple veins at the ends of the stems from late spring to late summer, which are most effective when planted in groupings. Its deeply cut lobed palmate leaves remain grayish green in colour throughout the season. Ballerina Cranesbill is a dense herbaceous perennial with a mounded form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage.
This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season’s flowers. Deer don’t particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. Hardy to USDA Zones 3b-9.
