More About Bishop's Form Erodium...

Similar in appearance to perennial geranium, Erodium x variabile 'Bishop's Form', commonly known as Pink Cranesbill, Pink Heron's Bill, or Storksbill, creates a dynamic display of pretty pink to rosy five-petaled flowers veined in deep fuchsia appear spring through early fall. The flowers are attractive to butterflies making it another suitable addition to the butterfly garden. The deep green slowly spreading foliage grows to about  6 inches tall and spreads up to 2 feet, making it a very attractive and easy to maintain perennial groundcover.

Due to it's spreading habit, Erodium 'Bishop's Form' makes a great border along the edges of gardens, along retaining walls, or in the crevices or gaps of rock walls and stepping stones. It is a nice small scale groundcover as well and is a great addition to a mixed container planting.

It is ideally suited for part sun with extremely well-draining alkaline soil. Sufficient drainage is a must. A true dwarf, it grows to four inches tall, spreading very slowly, so care must be taken not to position it amidst larger perennials that will overwhelm it.

These arrived when I was told they would. That often does not happen in the spring from many plant sources. They were in good sized containers, were large multi boded plants and very healthy. Packed well and are thriving in our yard.

I love them!
