Common Stork's-bill

Erodium cicutarium

Description:

It is a hairy, sticky annual. The stems bear bright pink flowers, which often have dark spots on the bases. The flowers are arranged in a loose cluster and have ten filaments – five of which are fertile – and five styles. The leaves are pinnate to pinnate-pinnatifid, and the long seed-pod, shaped like the bill of a stork, bursts open in a spiral when ripe, sending the seeds (which have little feathery parachutes attached) into the air.

Habitat:

Grassy meadow in mount Chortiatis (Thessaloniki, Greece)

Notes:

Greek name: Ερωδιός το ψευδοκώνειον. Greek common name: Καλόγερος.
