Erodium (Geraniaceae) is one of the best-known plants of the peat-free herbaceous sector. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful plants in Europe, with its white, pink, red or dark purple flowers. Erodium comes from a cold climate zone but also thrives in warm areas. For this reason it makes an excellent garden plant or indoor flower. The flowers are not pollinated by insects and wind movement helps them to reproduce, which means that they can be cut off for further flowering. This plant is perfectly suitable for gardens near water or next to lawns where there are no mowing restrictions.
