This member of the Geraniaceae family was given this name by Elizabeth M. Marais in 1993. It is found in south-western South Africa, growing in either clay, sandy or mixed and well drained soil with some water and some to lots of sun. The caudex can grow to three and a half centimetre, the leaves reach seventeen centimetres. The flowers are from cream over yellow to pink with maroon markings near the centre.

This is a winter grower.
