Wild geranium

A perennial woodland plant with 5 rounded pale purplish petals and 5 green sepals, 10 stamen and a single pistil, the wild geranium prefers light shade to partial sun light and moist to slightly dry conditions.  It’s nectar and pollen attract many species of bees, such as bumblebees, mason bees, nomadine cuckoo bees and various types of flies and moths. Chipmunks nibble their seeds and wild deer may eat their foliage.
