What is this?

Asked March 31, 2020, 3:34 PM EDT

We have an abundance of this low growing ground cover in the back section of our yard. It’s only one to two inches high at most, and grows in shady areas (under our Doug Fir stand). What is it? Thanks so much!!!!

I think what you might have is https://wmswcd.org/species/shiny-geranium/ It is considered an invasive so you should pull it up before it flowers/goes to seed.

Hi Sara,
Thank you!!!!

That looks just like it.
What a bummer, since we have a lot... But, we’ll get to pulling.
We are appreciative of your time and knowledge!
