This is one of the most succulent of all the succulent Pelargoniums, from South Africa where it gets almost no rainfall. It is a slow-growing plant that looks best in full sun and not watered all year round (reported it will grow happily year round if watered that way, but will never get stout or 'bonsai' looking as it does in the wild).
