Fact 1

Shining cranesbill Geranium lucidum

The shining cranesbill (Geranium lucidum) is a flowering annual found throughout Europe and has a pink flower; this collection is from Italy. Make a unique and exclusive wedding gift that safeguards the future of the entire species of the shining cranesbill in the Millennium Seed Bank. 

The shining cranesbill is often found on shady banks and on rocky slopes, mainly on limestone, and has flowers that appear from April to August.

You can adopt this entire species as a gift for £1,000. Your donation will be used to maintain the Millennium Seed Bank Partnership, ensure this species is kept safe forever in the vaults, and to collect more species in the future.

In addition to receiving your adoption pack featuring your certificate and photograph of the species (this will be posted to you, or the recipient), you will also be invited to a behind the scenes tour of the Millennium Seed Bank, at Wakehurst. You'll meet the staff and see the vaults where your species is stored.
