Erodium manescavii
« on: July 11, 2007, 09:48:39 PM »
Hello ! I got seeds of this Erodium labelled E. chrysanthum, but it is clearly evident that this is a misnomer, and I wonder if it could be Erodium manescavii ?

I think the flowers look similar to this picture of E. castellanum, so maybe that's the right species

I must say it looks very similar to Magnar's picture of E. castellanum as well. ( I hope it is okay that I link to one of your picture Magnar )

The link is  all ok Paul, no problem.

My E. castellanum is a low plant with the flower stems almost on the ground, while E. manescavi is much more upright.
