A young plant by Vered A. Mann.

   This member of the Geraniaceae family was given this name by Ulrich Meve and Elizabeth M. Marais in 2000. It is is endemic to the quartz fields of the Knersvlakte in the northern part of the Western Cape in South Africa, growing in the well drained quartz gravel with some water and some to lots of sun. The caudex can grow to two centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to seven centimetres in height. The flowers are from white over cream to light pink with red markings.

This is a winter grower, flowering in the late winter.
