I've seen this all over northern Germany - around Hamburg. My friend says it grows wild and spreads. Does anyone know what it is and how it will grow in eastern North America? Will it be invasive?

Thank you.

Looks like this one:
Wild Geranium (Geranium maculatum)

If that is the correct ID, it is native in N Amer.

I don't think so, but it is a Geranium. The growth pattern of Geranium maculatum (to mention one thing) is completely different. More likely to be a G. himalayense, but I don't know.

Sorry, I grabbed the wrong "m" species, meant to suggest macrorrhizum but agree, there are many species of Geranium, and I have no idea what wild natives (?) might be in Germany.

Thanks for the guesses. I think we'll just say a type of Geranium.

My first thought was maybe a variety of Manescau Erodium (Erodium manescavii) but I don't think the leaves match. How about a variety of this one? https://garden.org/plants/sear...
