Erodium x variabile 'William Bishop', Erodium chamaedryoides 'Bishop's Form'

Evergreen, Semi-evergreen Groundcover

Erodium reichardii ‘Bishop’s Form’ is a ground-covering perennial that features dense, deep-green, slightly lobed foliage with a hint of gray. It's covered in a profusion of small, pink flowers in spring to summer. This plant prefers well-drained soil and forms a trailing mat of foliage. A good selection for rock walls and containers. It is a subtle, but very sweet addition for northwest gardens. Use it for edging, between pavers, or in a trough.
