Erodium

Erodium manescavii full sun

Sharing the same resilience and long summer blooming period as many of its Geranium cousins, this dainty low growing perennial hails from the Pyrenees. A pleasing dome-shaped clump entertains notched, finely divided hairy leaves and showy clusters of five-petaled magenta-hued flowers on numerous straight ultra-thin stems. Marked by darker blotches and rich rosy lilac shades, the saucer-styled blooms give way to prominent slender beak-like fruit, which eventually twists into two tight spirals, inspiring the genus name.

A marvelous light-on-its-feet contender for the rockery or a border’s foreground, Herons Bill detests too much water and easily flourishes in a sunny well-drained spot.

Blooms June–September.

Size: 18" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 6.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.

Customer Comment:

“Ordered a selection of plants from Digging Dog earlier this year: campanula, ajuga, columbine, etc. All looked great, with healthy root systems. They've all settled in well and are thriving. I will order from them again.”
