Dusky Crane's-bill - Fiddle Wood Mill Bank

I came across more Dusky Crane's-bill (Geranium Phaeum)
While walking the dogs recently.

The mature leaves have dark blotches at the bases of the lobes.

This is the second location I have seen this.
Has any one else seen it in Calderdale?

  1. The form with big dark areas on the leaves is popular in gardens, and the escapees (because it seeds prolifically) are likely to revert to the wild form with small dark spots.
