Geranium maculatum, or Geranium, is a 12 inch native woodland perennial featuring pink-purple flowers that bloom in the late spring or early summer (April-June). Evergreen leaves grow in clumps up to 2' tall and 2' wide. Its nectar attracts pollinators and seeds as forage for birds and small mammals. Geraniums provide great groundcover and can be planted with other woodland perennials like the Coral Bells. It is tolerant of clay and black walnut.
Grow in average, dry or moist, and well-drained soils in full sun or partial to full shade. Geranium may shows signs of heat stress, so it is recommended to plant in late summer or fall to help the plant's performance in late spring and early summer blooms. Plant will spread at a moderate pace by self seed.
