Description

It has very nice dissected leaves that form a mounded habit. Five-petaled pink flowers, produced on stalks hovering over the leaves, grace the garden in May. Spotted geranium produces seeds freely, and new plants are always a surprise. This wild geranium, a native of our woodland forests, is one of the easier species to grow in a shade garden. A native plant that naturalizes well.
