Pelargonium wuppertalense

Pelargonium wuppertalense is a fairly new species that grows in the Cederberg mountains in the Western Cape among sandstone, it has creamy white flowers with reddish markings on the upper petals. The leaves can range from a basic leaf shape, divided into three parts, pinnatipartite or finely divided. This plant also has an underground tuber that is like a turnip in shape, I believe this plant is named after the small town Wuppertal in the Cederberg mountains and was possibly first discovered here.
