Description: Pelargonium barklyi is a native of western coastal areas of South Africa. The tubers are fairly large and round. A stemless rosette of leaves is formed at the soil surface. Leaves are very distinct, being round, and having depressed veins radiating out from the base. The depressed areas are a darker color than the rest of the leaf. Flower stems are very long, up to 65 cm. (2 feet), and are topped vath five to seven, or more, flowers that are pure white or white with slight pink veins at the base.
Culture: This is one species that does best in a large container. It just cannot produce a largd enough tuber in a small pot to survive the summer dormancy in really warm climates. If grown in a small container, it will survive dormancy better if stored away from really warm areas. This beautiful plant is easily grown from seed.
