southern storksbill (Pelargonium australe)
This hardy, coastal ground cover grows in the most difficult rocky and skeletal soils. It self-seeds easily and can also be grown from cuttings. Suitable for pots and rockeries, and as a general filler in the garden.
Aborigines roasted the slender tap root. High in starch but bitter to taste.
Flowers in spring.
