Erodium castellanum

Common name heronsbill
Family geraniaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers pink
Size 8"
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes prefers alkaline soils, not too dry

Tuft or mat of ferny leaves with delicately spotted pink flowers on upright stems. Suitable for rock gardens. The plants we grew from seed labeled as this turned out to be E. manescavii, so I'm hoping to grow the real thing one of these years.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
