Bloody crane's-bill
 
  Bloody crane's-bill Verev kurereha  Geranium sanguineum    
 
It prefers habitats with calcareous and dryish soils, as in Läänemaa, on the islands and in North Estonia.
It likes light, and grows in clumps that can reach over half a metre in height. The modest but beautiful flowers are set singly on the stem, diameter up to four centimetres.
 

Does it have its name from the fruits, shaped like a stork’s beak, or because the leaves turn red in autumn?
