Pelargonium ionidiflorum

Pelargonium ionidiflorum also known as the violet flower pelargonium is growing well.

It is a low growing shrub let with bright green aromatic leaves which have a celery like scent and the elegant flowers are pale pink to a darker shade of violet.

This plant is native to the Eastern Cape where it grows in rocky areas or among other plants with rain all year round, hot summers and fairly cold winters.

The name iondiflorum  refers to the violet colour of the flowers and the hybrid pelargoniums Deerwood lavender lass and Deerwood lavender lad are derived from this plant.
