I was so excited about 'Dark Reiter' and it joined my other cranesbills in a sunny location. Label said full sun/partial shade so it was in the right spot with other VERY happy cousins. After over 2 months of continued decline (lets put it this way, it lost all its leaves and was dying!) I decided to move it to more shady spot. I'm happy to report it is doing great! I see bunch of new leaves popping up and it looks very happy.
I will keep you updated on it's progress.

I love the dark foliage of this geranium. Perhaps not as vigorous as some are. Blooms June-July in my garden.
