Plant Number: 1.204.090  
Silver Heronsbill
Erodium chrysanthum

Print Plant


Literally in bloom for months, this long-blooming perennial forms a low tuft or mound of ferny silver-grey leaves. Satiny, almost orchid-like flowers appear from late spring through to the fall, in a soft creamy-yellow shade and with a lemony fragrance. One of the hardiest Heronsbill species, asking only for the excellent drainage provided by a rock garden, gravel scree or alpine trough. Evergreen. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in spring. A cousin to the familiar Cranesbill Geraniums. Selected as a Great Plant Picks for the Pacific Northwest (2007).
