We live in Rural West Central Florida, We have found this plant in our ditch, it looks like Italian Parsley? Can you help me identify it? Thanks!

    I’m thinking Carolina Geranium or crane’s bill
    I’ve seen it frequently in Alabama and Georgia and is supposed to grow over much of the US.

    Some sites suggest it may be edible.

    Thank you, roypayl, that definately looks like it is a Carloina Geranium. Beautiful folliage, I’m going to try to dig up more to plant by the house, I hope they flower. thanks again.

    Hello, Hopfroggy,
    I suggest that you will regret moving this plant into your yard. We consider it an agressive weed. It will get into your lawn and take over.

    I’m with Buck on this one…
    While there is a similar looking perennial geranium that has a nice flower… this geranium is a seedy annual. About the only saving grace of this plant is that the rabbits eat it, and my other plants get a break.
