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.
