Geranium endressii, commonly called Endres cranesbill or French crane's-bill, is a species of hardy flowering herbaceous perennial plant in the genus Geranium, Geraniaceae family.[1]

It is native to the Western Pyrenees in Spain, and is cultivated as a garden subject. It has a mounding to sprawling habit, therefore is useful as groundcover in light shade. The flowers are soft pink with red veins.[2][3]

This plant has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.[4]
