   This member of the Geraniaceae family was given this name by Don Gorge in 1832. It is found around Nieuwoundtville and Calvina in the central western South Africa, growing in a sandy or other well drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The caudex can grow to four centimetres in diameter and up to six centimetres long, the entire plant to 20 or even 60 centimetres in height. The flowers are pale yellow to yellow with dark, red markings. Some say it can be pink as well.

The species name refers to its yellow flowers.

This is a winter grower.
