Pineywoods Geranium or Purple Geranium are Arizona native perennial plants. This wildflower can be found in mountain meadows, pine forest edges, or riparian wooded areas. They flower from April to September, mainly in the summer months. I found this one in July at the edge of a Ponderosa Pine forest.
