Dove’s Foot Geranium Taking a Foot Hold

Last autumn I brought back a specimen of what I think is Dove’s Foot Geranium and planted it next to the house. The plant overwintered quite well, started growing in early spring, and now is spreading out.

In the image above, taken 2 May 2010, the large plant on the left overwintered in PA but was originally from NY. Note the new shoots – that must be arising from new roots – on the right of the original New York geranium.

We still look forward to its blooming later this summer. Once we can see the flower arrangement, flower size, and seedpods, we’ll be able to verify the Geranium species.
