propagating perennials: Erodium-Heronsbill
Undergoing MyBlogLog Verification

Wednesday, August 20, 2008


Propagating Erodium or Heronsbill can be done in the spring or fall because it is a low creeping groundcover so just dig up the rhizomes that look the healthiest and transplant. The plant will tolerate a hot and dry site, either full sun or half shade and a normal well draining soil and will do well in rock gardens. It is in the geranium family but only grows to 3" in height and is a tender perennial so any zone that dips below zero for any amount of time forget about it. It is evergreen so if it disappears over the winter it may not come back in the spring. Blossoms of pink or yellow that flower from June through August. It may not be deer resistant.
