Take a walk on the wild side! Forests and gardens alike look stunning with a Wild Geranium (Geranium maculatum) or two growing throughout. The color, easy to grow nature, and overall low maintenance of this plant will absolutely charm you!
Wild Geranium helps welcome in spring each year with a host of pink to lilac colored blooms blooming across the plant. You'd be hard-pressed to find a perennial bush that'll beat this one to bloom! Oh, and how beautiful they are. Each petal has dark veins running throughout that offer up a lovely unique texture.
While many flowering bushes need to be deadheaded in order to keep a pristine look, Wild Geranium is just as happy to be left alone as they do not normally repeat bloom. That leaves more time for you to sit back, relax, and admire them.
Are there areas in your garden that could use a little ground cover? Wild Geranium creates a beautiful carpet along the forest floor and could do the same for parts of your garden without spreading very far. This specimen also looks lovely as accents in your native garden or as border additions!
One of the best characteristics of this plant though is its easy-going nature. It'll thrive in full sun or partial shade and its many different types of soils as long as it's well-drained. Wild Geranium appreciated regular watering as long as it doesn't sit in a puddle.
Your neighbors will be awestruck by the first hints of spring unfold in your garden in the form of delightful pink blossoms. They won't be alone either! Pollinators such as butterflies will flutter to this early season source of nectar!
Sometimes referred to as Cranesbill due to its interesting crane's head shaped seed pods, Wild Geranium is the perfect low-maintenance beauty to place in your naturalized garden or next to a backyard patio. Its brilliant pink flowers will welcome in the warming weather, buy one or two to put the finishing touches on your garden today!
