Re: Introduction and Question
I think zone 5 is too cold for most erodiums. I advice you to grow them in
containers in a sunny place and store these containers in a greenhouse
during the winter. Even an unheated greenhouse gives them a lot of
protection. Erodium chrysanthum is one of the most hardy erodiums.
