Contributor Text: YASIN J. NASIR
Flower/Fruit: Fl. Per.: May-June.
Type: Type: Described from Kashmir.
Distribution: Distribution: Temperate W. & N.W. Himalaya.
Comment/Acknowledgements: Not common. Distinguished by the tubers, the emarginate-retuse petals, the rose coloured hairy filaments and awned sepals. Closely allied to the European Geranium tuberosum from which it differs in the glandular parts (in this respect similar to Geranium macrostylum), the smaller leaves, longer petioles (up to 25 cm) and a well developed petal claw.
