Geranium maculatum 'Gettin' High' is a 2022 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of a seed strain of our native Geranium maculatum, that originated on Alabama's Cheaha Mountain in Calhoun County...the tallest peak in the entire state. The mountain name is the Native American Creek Tribe word for "high place". Geranium maculatum 'Gettin' High' emerges in early spring, forming a 16" tall x 30" wide patch of loosely knit stems, clothed with maculate (silver splotched) leaves. The clumps are topped with clusters of mauve flowers, starting for us in mid-April (NC). Open shade to a bit of early morning sun are the best conditions.
