Geranium tripartitum / Kofuuro コフウロ


The picture's plant looks like a white variety (form) of Geranium thunbergii; the leaves split into three lobes around halfway and are standard across the country. However, with this species, i.e., Geranium tripartitum, inhabiting the semi-shady, moist part of a mountain, they entirely slice into three portions, which is one of the main characteristics of this species. Bloom time: August-September.
