Erodium cicutarium


This beautiful, edible, medicinal plant grows abundantly on our acre, especially in spring. It's important in the production of honey, and the leaves are a nice parsley-like addition to meals. It also has many other common names including Cranesbill, Redstem Filaree, Pinweed, Pin Clover, etc.


This grows sometimes small and sprawling (on the gravel driveway or hard bare soil) but mostly tall, bushy and lush, depending on precipitation, in areas which used to be lawn. Also grows nicely along my walking paths. Thrives on the south side of the house, but not the north.
