Geranium oreganum, 4" band pot
Oregon geranium is a sweet woodland perennial with profusely-blooming, dainty pink flowers and deeply lobed leaves. This flower has a fascinating reproductive method, with seeds that are attached to spiked capsules reminiscent of a crane’s bill (another common name for this groundcover) that curl upward before ejecting from the capsule. Forming dense patches of foliage, Oregon geranium is an excellent choice for meadows or wooded gardens with plenty of dappled sunlight.
