A Native American Medicinal — Wild Geranium

A Native American Medicinal -- Wild Geranium aka Cranesbill Root

This native perennial plant was used by early Native Americans. Potted some up for those interested in medicinal plants. Highly tannic, this can be used as a styptic and as a gargle for sore throat. Tons of it growing this year in one of the back beds. Great article on its uses here: http://www.twolanelivin.com/medicinal-properties-of-wild-geranium/
