The pelargonium group, including many varieties of geranium, is widely represented.
In Geranium the stamens are obdiplostemonous, i.e.
In England, the following species are confined or almost confined to calcareous soils: A splenium Ruta-muraria, Melica nutans, Carex digitata, Aceras anthropophora, Ophrys ap~ifera, Thalictrum minus, Helianthemum Chamaecislus, Viola hirta, Linum perenne, Geranium lucidum, Hippocrepis comosa, Potentiila verna, Viburnum Lantana, Galium asperum (= G.
Upon the highest summits are found Saponaria Pumilio (resembling our Silene acaulis) and varieties of Galium, Euphorbia, Astragalus, Veronica, Jurinea, Festuca, Scrophularia, Geranium, Asphodeline, Allium, Asperula; and, on the margins of the snow fields, a Taraxacum and Ranunculus demissus.

K., at 14-15,000, Geranium diffusum, H.
Of herbaceous plants species of Ranunculus, Potentilla, Geranium, Thalictrum, Primula, Gentiana and many other European forms are common.
Develop centrifugally (basipetally), as in geranium and oxalis, when the flower is said to be obdiplostemonous .
Sometimes the stamens in the early state of the flower project beyond the petals, and in the progress of growth become included, as in Geranium striatum.

Geranium tuberosum, L.
Upon the exposed mountain slopes a species of rhubarb (Rheum Ribes) is noticeable.
Geranium, Cardamine pratensis, mallows, Rubus, Oxalis, Epilobium, &c., but many species show more or less well-marked median symmetry (zygomorphism) as Euphrasia, Orchis, thyme, &c., and red, blue and violet are the usual colours.
It is represented in Britain by two genera, Geranium (crane's-bill) and Erodium (stork's-bill), to which belong nearly two-thirds of the total number of species.
The term dissected is applied to leaves with radiating venation, having numerous narrow divisions, as in Geranium dissectum.
Geranium is the most widely distributed genus; it has 160 species and is spread over all temperate regions with a few species in the tropics.
