   This member of the Geraniaceae family was given this name by George Don in 1831. It is found in the  South West Cape area of South Africa, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some to lots of sun. The turnip shaped tuber can grow to three centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to 18 centimetres in height. The flowers are pink with wine red markings.

 petroselinifolium means "parsley leaved".

This is a winter grower, flowering in summer - in the wild.
