Sticky Geranium
Geranium viscosissimum

Season: Spring/Summer
Habitat:
 Montane Woods
Height:
 15-60 cm

Description: When the sticky geranium is in bloom, it's difficult to walk past without noticing its showy beauty. It is a tall wildflower with large, deeply cleft, maple-like leaves. There are usually between 5 and 7 lobes, or divisions, on each leaf. Unlike the majority of our common wildflowers, the leaves grow in opposite pairs, and have a long petiole. The pinkish-purple flowers bloom for several months during the summer. The petals have purple veins, leading to an almost striped appearance. The flowers occur in loose groups at the top of the plant. The stem has tiny glands that secrete a sticky substance which gives the plant its name.
