Description

A decumbent, aromatic plant, it may be annual or biennial. Stems are hairy and can be long and trailing. Leaves are often 3-lobed and have rather rigid hairs, the underside of the petals are dark in colour. The stipules are hirsute and triangular, 5mm long and about 2,5mm wide. The striking, pink flowers with wine-red markings are relatively small, borne in umbels of 3-8 flowers. Five fertile stamens are present and the pollen is orange. The plants can germinate in profusion, especially after fire, they are fast growing, and with their trailing stems can cover large areas relatively quickly. 'chamaedrys' refers to the leaves which resemble those of Chamaedrys genus
