Wild Geranium


Geranium

(Geranium carolinianum)

Wild geranium, also called Carolina geranium, is a semi-erect winter annual. The erect stems are branching and covered with hair. The alternate leaves are on long petioles and are divided into segmented leaflets which are blunt toothed.

Individual wild geranium plants can be removed by pulling or digging. Removal should be performed prior to flower and seed formation. Follow good turf management practices to create a dense competitive stand of turfgrass.
