Geranium dalmaticum, commonly called Dalmatian cranesbill, is a species of hardy flowering herbaceous perennial plant in the genus Geranium in the Geraniaceae family.[1] It is native to Dalmatia on the west coast of Croatia. Growing to only 10 cm (3.9 in) tall by up to 50 cm (20 in) broad, it is cultivated as a garden subject in temperate regions for its low mound of aromatic leaves and soft mauve colored flowers.[2] The palmately lobed glossy green leaves are tinted red in the Autumn.[3] It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.[4][5]
