Erodium Alba White Alpine Geranium


Erodium reichardii 'Alba'
White Alpine Geranium
Super cute, tiny mound of deep green oval leaves which will create great interest in a rock garden or as a pocket planting. Spring brings this little charmer to life with abundant, large white blooms which are much bigger than the average erodium flower.  Great plant for containers, entryways or to compliment any border planting.

Tips from Fran
Don’t let the diminutive size of this plant fool you! Erodium alba’s bloom is twice as big as its leaves!  Perfect in a container!

* ~This can be used as a beautiful lawn substitute as long as it is used for ornamental purposes, not functional, like croquet.
* ~This plant can take paths, courtyards, patios and garden stairs with ease. However, it grows in a clumping fashion instead of creeping, like our high traffic plants,  and can get scuffed off if not careful. So that should be something to look at as you are deciding.
* ~This plant can be used under trees and shrubs if enough light is given. It will be thin and spindly if there is not enough light to the area.
