Wild geraniums started blooming around May 1st, although in sunny locations there were early flowers. This wildflower is very easy to grow in gardens. My home came with a bunch in the front. After a couple of years of bloom I cut out a bit of the edge of one plant and moved it to another shady location in the yard. I transplanted after the plant had bloomed. The next year I couldn't tell where the first plant had been reduced and the moved portion is still doing really well in its new spot. The plants bloom copiously for a couple of weeks and then the foliage dies back making room for summer flowers.
