Description from Possibility Place: Wild Geranium is a great addition to any shade area. Blooms occur late spring to early summer and last about a month. While plants will grow in full shade environments, you will get the best flower show by placing in part shade. Leaves may become yellowed or scorched during the hot, dry months, but can be kept green with extra watering.
