Geranium maculatum

 
 
The wild geranium is a beautiful plant found natively in North America. They are located natively as far south as Georgia and as far north as Southern Ontario. They also stretch as far west as Oklahoma and the Dakotas. Geraniums are commonly found in dense woodland and shady roadside.  Geraniums tend to grow in clusters of 2-5 flowers on a mound of green foliage. The leaves take on a serrated shape, which closely resembles a diamond. The flowers are mostly light violet or purple, occasionally white. They have five petals that have dark lines and whitish bases. This is a plant that can adapt to various growing conditions and is perfect for a home landscaping project. Seedlings will germinate after 2 to 3 months. Most seedlings will flower in the second or third year after sowing. Geraniums do best in the moist well-drained soil. The soil should have plenty of organic matter mixed in, similar to a forest floor. Geraniums are highly adaptable, and they readily adjust to poor growing conditions. The flowers will appear between April and June depending on latitude. The geranium plant is also known as spotted cranesbill or wild cranesbill. It has been used medicinally by Native Americans as a way to treat toothaches and stop bleeding. Some people consider this to be a deer resistant plant.
