Plantidote of the day 2011-05-26.
Geranium sanguineum striatum
Because it has once again gone all overcast and rainy here in NJ, I thought I would post this happiness pic taken on a rare sunny day. This is a full sun ground cover, and I just loved the contrast of the bright green leaves and pink periwinkle looking flowers.
Please advise if you know what this is. Thanks!
EDIT: Thanks to Cay, we have: Cranesbill, Geranium sanguineum striatum. See here for details. Also, added "Plantidote" to title for search consistency and below, general plantidote information.
