Wild Geranium Growing and Maintenance Tips

Grows best in an average to moist, well-drained soil, in partial to full shade, however, will tolerate full sun with adequate moisture. Pruning hard after flowering will help maintain its shape, but will not extend bloom time. Spreads non-aggressively by rhizomes.
