Cranesbill

Low-growing, colony forming herb with deeply cleft five-lobed leaves and showy flowers atop a raised stem. The flowers have pink and white petals with prominent parallel veins. The blooms are followed by a distinctive pointed, curved seed capsule that resembles a crane's beak and gives this plant its common name. Spreads slowly through rhizomes, but is not aggressive. Thrives in deciduous woodland shade on moist slopes and in bottomlands.
