Geranium neglectum Flowers
Common Name: Native Geranium, Crane's Bill
Species: Geranium neglectum
The dainty white flowers of Geranium neglectum or Native Geranium. Despite the species epithet neglectum giving a hint that this species may be able to handle neglect, I managed to kill the one I was growing. It turns out this species doesn't tolerate drying out too well, which is understandable as its naturally found along creek banks and in swamps.
