Filarees Overview

Erodium is a genus of around 128 perennials, known as Filarees, Heron’s Bill and Storksbills, dependent on location. They produce long-lasting 5-petalled pink, white or purple flowers, which may be patterned on the inner surface. Botanists have developed hybrid cultivars from this genus for their pretty blooms and attractive mound-forming habit. Foliage is lobed or pinnately divided.
