This member of the Geraniaceae family was given this name by Richard Anthony Salisbury in 1805. It is only found in a small fynbos area in Western Cape of South Africa, growing in sandy or other well drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The caudex can grow to three centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to five centimetres in height with 10-15 centimetres inflorescences.
