OTHER: Native to North America as well as several other continents, Robert’s Geranium is an excellent choice for adding color to a shade garden or anywhere in your landscape. The plants are also tolerant of coastal conditions. They have a wonderfully long bloom season, flowering from spring to fall with tons of pink flowers. The petals typically feature darker striped accents on its flowers that are held over the foliage on lovely red stems. The foliage is fragrant & elegant, with intricately shaped leaves that are somewhat similar to that of a bleeding heart or parsley, rather than the other kind of geranium leaf shape. The foliage turns beautiful shades of red in the fall.
This heirloom Geranium gets one of its common names ‘Herb Robert’ from its many traditional herbal / medicinal uses. My favorite? Use fresh crushed leaves to repel mosquitoes!
Interesting fact – This native is considered to be a threatened species in Indiana, an endangered species in Mississippi, & of special concern in Rhode Island. However, it is considered to be a weed in Washington State where apparently it grows a little too well.
