Geranium maculatum

10 roots $10.00

A native crane bill, named for it’s elongated seed, at home on heavy, well drained bottom land soils under mixed hardwoods emerges before the lastfrost with small spotted, lobed leaves and blooms in April for us.  Truly a woodland flower with bright pink blossoms, like the typical non maculated Geranium maculatum of the trade, mixing well in large groups with arisaema, podopyllum, tipularia, and christmas ferns it goes dormant when summer’s heat sets in.  Rather than forming a “crown”, a connected cluster of plants, like it’s big sisters, it retires into the ground with a tiny storage corm.
