Geranium sanguineum - Bloody Crane's-bill
Bloody Crane' s-bill is probably native only on the Lizard and along the north coast between Porthtowan and Chapel Porth (SW64Z). Elsewhere it is an introduction, often as a garden escape. Recent records include Castle Gate (SW43X, 1996, C.N.French), Gwithian Towans (SW54V. 1996, E.C.M.Haes), Kynance Cove (SW61W, 1993, P.E.Tompsett), near Beagles Point (SW71T, 1990, N.H.Davies), a cliff-top near Trewillis (SW71Y, 1992, C.N.French), near Wheal Basset (SW74D, 1991, T.J.Geater), near Silverwell (SW74N, 1991, C.N.French), Reen Sands, Perranporth (SW75M, 1997, B.N.Boothby), near Deep Tye Farm (SW96K, 1996, I.J.Bennallick), and Crooklets (SS20D, 1994, M.Atkinson).
