Plant Description and Details

Silky pink flowers with delicate purple lines adorn the Sticky Geranium during the early summer. The hairy and sticky leaves have deeply divided lobes which turn a pretty red tone in the fall. Preferring to have moisture in the spring, it becomes more drought tolerant in summer, making an upright, rounded clump. Happiest in light shade, it can take on a sprawling form if planted in deep shade or overwatered.
