Experience the charm of this native perennial geranium! It sports fresh, green leaves and large deep pink flowers that can brighten any space. The plant enjoys a bit of extra moisture in the summer, or some light shade when the heat really sets in. Though it goes dormant and disappears in late summer, it emerges in early spring. Its open-faced flowers are also a favorite with small native bees. (Mother plants from Benton and Polk counties).
