Wild Geranium is a perennial broadleaf weed that prefers dry open areas but commonly invades garden beds and lawns. The hairy stems are green and pink in color, while the leaves are bright green and deeply lobed. Small clusters of pink to purple flowers bloom from spring into fall.


Wild Geranium is found throughout the United States, but is most troublesome in wet summer areas.
