I seem to have seven of these in abundance. I was happy to see that wild bergamot was expanding this spring and wild geranium which I planted last spring was coming back strongly. I also have a few New England Aster seedlings growing indoors, I have sowed seeds too but have not seen any on the ground yet. I am also excited to have a dozen of Verbena bonariensis seedlings growing and Wild Senna seedlings.

So I keep reading in comments that if I purchase in a garden store it is probably a hybrid and non-native. Where do I get native plants, that are truly native geraniums and not "Roxannes"?
