This herb is almost a pernicious weed. It grows almost everywhere. I had little respect for it until I found out it has many healing properties including cancer. It grows in most of my pot plants and everywhere in the garden. Its seed are ejected from the seed pods when dry, perhaps thats is why it gets everywhere. Despite this it is a beautiful plant with very pretty pnk flowers and the usual cransbil seed pods. It has several common names including Storkbill, Cranesbill, Red Robin, Fox geranium, St. Robert's Wort, Bloodwort, Felonwort and Dragon's blood. Here it is being used as ground cover for the Cercis tree, which grows in a large pot.
