This member of the Geraniaceae family was
given this name
by Vincenz Franz Kosteletzky in 1896. It comes from the southern part of Africa, lives in
well-drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The caudex can grow
to fourteen centimetres in diameter and the plant grow up to one and
a half meters in height. The flowers are purple, and
the plant can be reproduced both by seeds and cuttings.
This might be a winter-grower.
