Comming Soon
  • Wild Geranium is mostly found in woodlands in its natural habitat but will also do great in a home garden setting with more sun if it is planted in rich soil that is consistently damp. This lovely native plant has complex leaves, beautiful delicate pinkish-purple flowers, and it readily spreads, forming stunning patches that attract many types of pollinators! It is a long lived plant that blooms prufusely in the spring. The foliage typically turns a bright red in the fall, adding another season of interest.
