Erodium chrysanthum ~ Yellow Storksbill

Erodium chrysanthum is a slow growing perennial with silver foliage. Plants are 4-6" tall and a foot or more in width after a season or two. The pale yellow flowers of Erodium chrysanthum stand out in the evening light almost as well as white would and they don't have the glare that white does in the full sun. I like the intricacy of the finely dissected gray leaves. Yellow Storksbill blooms most heavily in Spring with a smattering of flowers most of the rest of the year. Erodium chrysanthum requires some drainage and will tolerate a little shade but prefers full sun.
