Click for a larger image
A commercial hybrid, this pretty Cranesbill - hardy Geranium has large flowers of pale pink which are heavily veined and netted in dark red. It grows to around 45-65cm (18in-2ft) high on thin straggly stems with fairly deeply cut leaves of three lobes.
Apparently a recent introduction in the commercial market, being excellent for ground cover in sun or shade with a long flowering period. The plants found in Brickfields Park are garden escapees from vegetative rubbish dumped in the park by residents.
