The Home of the Pelargonium

Pelargonium fulgidum

I’ve always known that South Africa is the home of the pelargonium, but even so I was amazed by the sheer diversity that exists there in the wild. From vibrant red species tumbling down cliff faces,  to large pink-flowered shrubs on the road verges to the subtle beauty of Pelargonium triste in amongst the wildflowers of the veld, everywhere we looked there were examples of this highly adaptive plant.
