Wild Geranium (Geranium maculatum)
A native perennial covered with delicate 1.5 inch rosy-lavender to soft pink flowers. Blooms April to June. Used in open woodlands, perfect for the border of a shade garden, or naturalized in sweeps at the base of large trees. Wild Geranium prefers moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil and high open shade and accepts sunny conditions with moisture but will go dormant in drought conditions. Occurs in rich or rocky open woods from the Midwest to the Eastern part of the United States.
