The flowers of wild geranium are borne above the leaves in groupings of two to ten lavender flowers. Each flower is one to two inches wide. Geranium comes from the Greek ‘geranos’ meaning crane. The seed capsule’s long narrow shape resembles the bill of a crane, leading to the alternate common name, cranesbill.
