Wood Cranesbill
 

 

Once Wood Cranesbill is recognised as a Cranesbill (from the 5 petalled flowers, the appearance of the leaves and the "crane's bill" fruits), identification is plain sailing. It is similar to Meadow Cranesbill, but the flowers are less blue and more mauve and they will usually have a conspicuous white centre.

Common in the north, rare in the south, in hedge-banks, woods, meadows and moors during the summer months.
