Pelargonium elongatum is a small, soft-textured plant up to 25cm. Young leaves are heart-shaped but become 5-lobed when older, often with a reddish zonal marking; umbels of up to 6 dainty flowers are borne on long flower stalks, cream in color with red-wine markings on the 2 upper petals.
Pelargonium elongatum is a small straggling ground covering plant which prefers to grow under or next to taller plants. Best planted in medium-sized pots or in larger pots mixed with other plants, window boxes or planted in the garden. You can find them on stony slopes in the Southwestern and Southern Cape.
