The flowers of the wild or spotted geranium have a long style (crane’s bill) and five pink rounded petals. The leaves are palmately cut into three to five lobes.  This perennial has hairy forking stems, 1-2 feet high, that arise from a thick rhizome. Wild geranium is found in woods and partly sunny areas. It grows all through Duff Park and on the pipeline. One will find it as well in other parks in Murrysville.
