This is a native Australian Pelargonium. Not as spectacular as other Pelargoniums in cultivation, but still an attractive little plant. It mostly grows along the coast in sand dunes and on sea cliffs, but we have a small colony on a little cliff on a hillside in Morwell National Park (100 km inland). Their liking for growing in crevices in cliffs makes them a good rockery plant. I have grown them from seed and have them established in our local Park, and in my garden. In my garden, they self-seed fairly readily and although the plants (though perennial) are not very long-lived, they continue to appear in odd corners of the garden.
