Herb Robert (Geranium robertianum) a must for every wildlife garden

You probably recognize this one from having seen it somewhere along a nature trail.

No other geranium is as prolific as this one; once introduced to your garden, its seeds will germinate everywhere.

It simply bears an abundance of tiny pink flowers all through its fairly short lifespan. The leaves are intriguingly compound and deeply lobed in form and display colours ranging from green to bronze.

The flowers can be born white, however this phenomenon is much more rare.

 

Simply pull them out when they start to look scrubby, to be replaced with a seedling in no time.

They can basically grow anywhere in any type of soil and under most conditions. No wildlife garden can be called wild without them!

There has to be a spot in your garden where you can let them be.
