Plant Summary

The ivy-leaved pelargonium, Pelargonium peltatum, is a beautiful and versatile garden plant that can climb, trail, or cover the ground. It has semi-succulent stems, ivy-shaped leaves, and clusters of flowers in various shades of pink, mauve, or white. It attracts butterflies and bees, and has sour-tasting sap that is traditionally used to treat sore throats, wounds, burns, and greasy skin. The young leaves and buds are edible and it is used to produce a grey-blue dye. It is easy to grow from cuttings or seeds, and can tolerate sun or shade. It is native to the coastal and succulent scrub of South Africa.
