I hope Geranium robertianum

…, pl always provide diameter of the flower. It can be very confusing from photographs.


This does seem to match Geranium robertianum known as ‘Herb Robert’ in the UK where it is very common. I took some close-up images locally last year which I have added to the Geranium page I have started on my Wild Flowers of Buckinghamshire (a county in the UK) site – which I have neglected since joining this group!
Stewart recorded it in N. Pakistan and Kashmir @ 1500-2400m.

Geranium robertianum — at Shakati – GHNP– PKA33 : 5 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (5).  

Very beautiful small herb seen at Shakati Camp site at GHNP at an altitude of approx. 2300m.
Bot. name: Geranium robertianum
Family: Geraniaceae 


I saw this Geranium last year only near Joshimath. Readily identified with its leaves. Nice shots.


I had also seen this plant during my Valley of Flower visit 2 years back.. Flowers looks very cute..


Surprisingly this species is not mentioned in “Flora of Great Himalayan National Park” (by S.K.Singh & G.S.Rawat).


This does seem to match Geranium robertianum known as ‘Herb Robert’ in the UK where it is very common. I took some close-up images locally last year which I have added to the Geranium page I have started on my Wild Flowers of Buckinghamshire (a county in the UK) site – which I have neglected since joining this group!

Good to see close-ups as makes the process of identifying it much easier.

This too was growing in one of the castle grounds in Salzburg, Austria. This was clicked in April 2016.
Is this some Geranium?


The second one resembles Geranium robertianum recorded from VOF area…
