Common name: Trailing Geranium
Botanical name: Geranium procurrens    Family: Geraniaceae (Geranium family)

Trailing Geranium is a perennial herb found high in the Himalayas. Like all geraniums, it has deeply lobed leaves. This plant spreads speedily by long red stems. Flowers are dusky pinkish-purple, 1 inch across, with black veins and an inky-black center. The petals do not overlap and the flowers are not as handsome as those of some other Geraniums. The color, however, is striking. Trailing Geranium is found at altitudes of 2100-3500 m. Flowering: August-October.
