Plant Summary

Pelargonium cucullatum, known as the hooded-leaf pelargonium, is a fast-growing, sprawling shrub with cupped, kidney-shaped leaves and pinkish-purple flowers. It is the parent of many modern pelargonium hybrids and a common sight on the sandy and granite slopes along the Cape coast. It attracts sunbirds, butterflies, long-beaked flies and moths with its faintly scented blooms. It has been used medicinally to treat various ailments and as a hedgerow ornamental and cut flower. It is easy to grow from seed or cuttings and requires full sun and little attention once established.
