Geranium rotundifolium L.
Genus : Geranium
Catalan common name : Suassana.
General distribution : South Mediterranean
Flowering time : March. April. May. June. July. August. September. October. November.
Life-forms : Terophyte.
Habitat : Cultivated fields, path and road sides.
IUCN Category : Poco preocupante

Characteristics : The gerania of our flora have rounded leaves. Geranium rotundifolium also has this morphology of leaves, and moreover the lobes are very scarcely defined. The flowers are pink, with whole or lightly notched petals. This feature allows it to be clearly distinguished from Geranium molle, which lives in the same habitats and has very similar leaves, but the flowers have deeply bilobulate petals. It flowers very early, during winter, and it can be found in any grassland and even in dry moors.

Hi Josep,

This trio of Geranium are very beautiful with lovely colors and fine details. I love the shape of the petals. The composition with the green leaves and neutral background is superb.


Hola Josep,
Como siempre, el enfoque es genial y la calidad del fondo es creciente. Veo una leve tendecia a una excedido de brillo gamma, imagino que tiene que ver con la luminosidad solar y el angulo de incidencia de la luz. ¿Fue tomada cerca del mediodía?.

Hello Josep Ignasi

Have a good night

Hallo Josep
Your valuable input to everybody on the site is always appreciated. Once again you share a beautiful image filled with lilac coloured flowers. I really envy you for this one as it is very beautiful and warmed my heart when I saw it. It is indeed a feast to the eye. I can only but imagine what pleasure it is, to see a view like this in person, as it is a more than a feast to me, sitting 1000's of kilometres away. Like always it was a pleasure stopping by your gallery. Thanks for sharing this lovely macro. It is one of those I call a PPP -Pretty, perfect, picture. Best regards.
