Two different young plants by Vered A. Mann

   This member of the Geraniaceae family was given this name by Elizabeth M. Marais in 1999. It is found from Cape Province to Northern Cape of South Africa, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some to lots of sun. The caudex can grow to one and a half centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to ten centimetres in height. The flowers are white with red markings.

The name; parvipetalum referees to the very small and insignificant petals.

This is a winter grower.
