Wild Pelargonium identifications

Jens2December 22, 2011


Recently I visited South Africa, where I found three Pelargonium species I'm not able to identify. If anyone could provide me with a name, I would be very grateful.

I uploaded some pictures of the three species to a gallery:

Species 1: http://www.dropbox.com/gallery/5839287/2/Pelargonium%20species/Sp.%202?h=718607

Found near Kleinmond, directly along the coast.

Species 2: http://www.dropbox.com/gallery/5839287/2/Pelargonium%20species/Sp.%204?h=ca7ec0

Found near Robertson, in the karoo.

Species 3: http://www.dropbox.com/gallery/5839287/2/Pelargonium%20species/Sp.%205?h=092dad

Found near the Groot Winterhoek reserve.

Please let me know if you have any idea which species these plants could be. Many thanks in advance.
