Description
 

Geranium Robertianum "Herb Robert" is a small compact herbaceous plant with deeply dissected leaves, reddish stems and grows to about 50cm. The plant produces small five-petalled pale pink/purple flowers during the warmer months. Whilst this is a pretty plant with several high-value ornamental horticulture applications, this species has developed a cult-like following in recent years due to its apparent health benefits, given this variety is believed to be a source of various vitamins and minerals, including the often cited germanium. Apparent actions and/or herbal benefits associated with this plant variety include antibiotic, adaptogen, antiviral, styptic, tonic, diuretic, digestive, sedative, antioxidant and several more obscure claims. At The Climbing Fig™, we cannot vouch for any of these claims, and do not provide any recommendation at all - we simply love the beautiful flowers of this somewhat mysterious herb variety. We have however found that this variety, like Artemisia Absinthium "Wormwood" is great for acting as a natural mosquito repellent in the garden and around outdoor entertainment areas.

Geranium Robertianum "Herb Robert" is also known as Red Robin, Storksbill, Dove's For, Crow's Foot as well as the synonym Robertiella robertiana.
