When Vered A. Mann's plant got older, the leaves turned more flat.

   This member of the Geraniaceae family was given this name by Elizabeth M. Marais in 2000. It is found near Rosh Pinah in Namibia down to Steinkopf in South Africa, growing in a well drained soil with little to some water and some to lots of sun. The caudex can grow to two centimetres or more, the leaves up to five centimetres and the inflorescence to 30 centimetres, baring the cream to pale yellow flowers with maroon spots in the centre.

This is a winter grower.
