Like Geranium pratense this wild geranium has a very restricted range as a native in Ireland, being confined to scrubby places about Glenarm. A characteristic habitat is the hazel scrub which clings to the basalt cliffs of the Antrim coastal escarpment. These native sites show up on the map as a cluster of four dots in the Glenarm area. The other dots are either records of the plant as a garden escape or errors for meadow cranesbill (G. pratense).
The plant is much commoner in Scotland and Northern England than in Ireland for reasons that are a mystery.
All names: Geranium sylvaticum L.; Geranium angulatum Curt.
