This little jewel of the forest floor is considered a noxious weed in Washington state (where this was photographed) and has taken over much of the Pacific Northwest. Native to Europe, this little geranium is one of hundreds of plants introduced as an attractive ornamental that escaped into the wild. Often called "Stinky Bob", crushing the leaves or stem will result in the strong odor of burning tires.
