Herb-Robert (Geranium robertianum) is one of two annual geranium species native to New Brunswick. It is found mainly on moist rock ledges in open woods. Each of the pale to intensely pink flowers lasts for only one day before wilting. The common name honours St. Robert, for reasons uncertain.




Collected by Agnes L. Warner in Saint John, New Brunswick, 24 June 1892.
