   This member of the Geraniaceae family was given this name by Carl Ludwig  von Willdenow in 1800. It is found in the western South Africa, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some sun. The caudex can grow to two and a half centimetres in diameter and ten centimetres long, the entire plant to 25 centimetres in height. The flowers are from crème to pink with dark red markings.

This is a winter grower, flowering early in the growing season. Despite that, it can be grown all year round.

Pelargonium ovatostipulatum might turn out to be a separate species due to the different in their stipules and origins.
