Wild Geranium
Geranium maculatum
Location: woods, meados
Wild Geranium is popular not only for its lovely lavender spring blooms, but also for its ruggedness and versatility. An excellent garden plant, it retains its attractive foliage all season long, unusual for a spring-blooming flower. Reaching one to two feet tall, it multiplies to form nice clumps. Grows in sun to shade, in dry and medium soil. Also thrives in full sun in a rich soil.
